This calculator is intended only as a guide and uses normal UK tax and NI information to calculate the net salary of an employed person. Tax is complex, and your personal circumstances might mean your take-home pay is different. Seek professional advice if you want to learn more.

How much tax will I pay on my take-home?

Under the UK’s PAYE (Pay as you earn) system, employers deduct tax and National Insurance (NI) contributions before they pay you.

Most people can earn a certain amount tax free: in 2020/2021, this is set at £12,500. Tax is then calculated according to the amount you earn, with a 20% tax rate for income up to £37,500, and 40% tax on amounts above this, to £150,000. These figures are adjusted annually, and may vary across different regions of the UK.

Starting with your gross salary, your employer will calculate your tax and NI liabilities, taking into account your tax-free allowance and the tax bands your wage falls into.

Take a look at the salary matrix which gives a rough idea of what take-home pay to expect with different pay bands.
