I was going to be £1,575 short this month as my current company was supposed to take over my season ticket loan from my previous company. This didn't happen so my previous company deducted £1,575 from my final pay cheque. Ouch! Luckily my new company had part paid me for this month so should be fine but still I would certainly miss that from my account especially before Christmas.
I've just got back from HR and they're going to transfer it over shortly then deduct it from my next 3 pay cheques. Phew!
