HM Revenue & Customs risked fresh public anger today with a “radical” plan to deduct tax directly from workers' pay packets.
“This suggestion that gross pay might flow into a central computer, which would then pass net pay on to employees, is completely unacceptable. Sooner or later, the system would break down and some people would not get paid.”

your employer pays you and forwards the tax to the taxman, now the taxman wants all your money first he takes the tax from your gross salary sent to him by your employer - then you get it.
If its wrong, you will have to contact the taxman rather than speak to the accounts dept of your employer.

That's how it works here mostly.
I don't get asked to pay, it's taken before i get it.
From their perspective it's efficiency.

Another problem I can see with this, for the worker, is that if you have fines or some form of debt to the government, they can just take it, or allotments, before you get whats left.
