Pay my department
Please see information on the 'Pay my department' payment method when making claims for departmental teaching.
The OxCORT server will occasionally be taken down without prior warning on Tuesday mornings between 8.00 and 9.00 a.m.. This will allow us to carry out upgrades, system patches and maintenance at a pre-established time. Such downtimes will not take place in weeks 7, 8 or 9 of each term. Many apologies for the inconvenience.
The OxCORT Tutorial Office Administration training course is run in Michaelmas and Trinity Term. For more information please visit the Student Systems training website. Visit the Staff Gateway for other training & development needs.
OxCORT is a web application for the collection and processing of tutorial reports for undergraduate teaching. The name "OxCORT" is an acronym for "Oxford Colleges On-line Reports for Tutorials".OxCORT is maintained and supported by Business Services and Projects.
Payments to individuals: Payment for external tuition made to an individual who is not in the employment of the College concerned has, since 6 April 2006, been paid without deduction of PAYE income tax. Even though you may be employed by the University or another College, HM Revenue and Customs will classify you as self-employed for external tuition payment purposes. (To register as self-employed you must complete form CWF1 which may be obtained from the HMRC website.) With effect from 6th April 2012, National Insurance Contributions are no longer payable on self-employed earnings. External Tutors are thus now treated as self employed for both tax and NI purposes. Parts of the Social Security (Categorisation of Earners) Regulation 1978 (SI 1978/1689) have been revoked, the consequence being that self-employed lecturers are no longer subject to the deduction of Class I National Insurance Contributions.
Payments to non-stipendiary retained lecturers: If you have a current retaining fee or non-stipendiary contract with the College you will be regarded as being a casual employee of the College. As such, PAYE and NI will be deducted in the normal way.
Payments to graduate students of the University of Oxford: If you are a graduate student of the University you will be regarded as being a casual employee of the College concerned. As such, PAYE and NI contributions will be deducted in the normal way. For this purpose you will need to complete a P46 tax form a copy of which may be obtained from the College for whom you are teaching. If you do not have a National Insurance number you will need to contact Oxford Jobcentre Plus on 0845 6043719 to arrange an interview to apply for an NI number.
Deadline for submitting reports: Tutors - please ensure that all reports are submitted by Friday of 7th week (see University term dates). Payments are made termly, and late claims will be processed at the end of next term.
