What SalaryCalculatorUK.co.uk can do for you!

Salarycalculatoruk.co.uk uses the information from the UK tax office, including the Income tax and National Insurance information, to calculate deductions and take-home pay for any given salary.

Tax

Since April 2016, all taxpayers, of all ages, have a default tax-free allowance of £12,500. Since April 2010, people earning over £100,000 will see an incremental reduction in the contribution, by £1 for every £2 they earn over that £100,000. That happens until the allowance reaches zero. However, the personal allowance may be different from the default allowance dependant upon your tax code.

In all of the UK except Scotland, the tax breaks down as the following:

  • Allowance + £1 – £37,500 is at 20% tax rate.
  • £37,501 – £150,000 is at a 40% tax rate.
  • £150,001 and above is at a 45% tax rate.

From April 2016, Scotland has been setting different tax bands. They are:

  • Allowance – allowance+ £2,085 is at a 19% tax rate.
  • £2,085 – £12,658 is at a 20% tax rate.
  • £12,659 – £30,930 is at a 21% tax rate.
  • £30,931 – £150,000 is at a 41% tax rate.
  • £150,000+ is at a maximum of 46%.

National Insurance

Code A National Insurance is used with most employees who do not pay into a pension, or if your pension is not contracted out. The rates on NI are as follows:

  • <£183 a week = £0 NI contributions
  • £184-£962 a week = 12%
  • £962+ = 2%

All of our calculations are based on the figures that you see above. Therefore, they may not accurately predict your exact take-home pay for any given amount. Never make any major financial decisions based on the information that you see on this website.

Average Salary by Occupation

Take a look through some of the largest industries in the UK, and what the average salary is for those positions. This data is based on a report carried out by the Office for National Statistics.

The figures are all averages and not exact representations of the wages that you would earn in that specific job role. The reason for that is because the data used for this article is UK-wide, and there are some significant differences in salary dependant upon location throughout the UK.

This article will be especially useful if you want to compare your wages to the national average of the UK. Furthermore, you may want to change career paths to something completely different. It is always important to see what the National average wage is for a position you are applying for. That is because you may be applying for a job that is severely underpaid, in which case, you may want to reconsider the employer.

  • The total average for a full-time worker in the UK is £35,423.
  • For part-time, that figure is £12,083.
  • An overall salary average is £29,009.

However, those figures do not mean anything, as it takes into account the lowest and highest-paid positions.

While the Office for National Statistics shows 400 occupations, we have chosen some of the most prevalent roles within the data.
