    Well my understanding of living in London is that the nearer you are to the center, the higher your council tax....

    But i'm interested to hear your understanding of it
    Camden

    £880.32 - £2640.96

    Greenwich

    £855.94 - £2567.82

    Westminster

    £451.16 - £1353.48


    To demonstrate just a few. Even if we took the most expensive of my examples, and a single person living alone - It equals £220 per month.

    Even on minimum wage (£817 per month) it is far from being a "majority of anything u earn".

    I havnt begun to factor in council tax reductions for people on low income and that i've used the most expensive tax banding.

    Minimum wage. If I own my own business I'd like to pay myself (as well as any employees) the living wage. Anything else is unnecessary and probably comes with more stress and responsibility.

    At least £52,000+

    If I get good at my job, at least £150,000+

    If I am great at my job, at least £1,000,000+

    If I was a great trader, £1M+ is not ambitious.

    I'm not saying I am a great trader, it takes years of experience.

    Some sort of research chemistry (either academic or industrial) . Will probably start out on about £18k as science graduates are undervalued, but there are plenty of opportunities to rapidly expand into the £28-36k bracket :yep:
    me same as you.



    I earn 17k now at the moment, hopefully get promoted to 29k before I turn 25.

    Live in London so it ain't like I'm going to live a lavish life.

    Realistically, I'd start around £40k. Hoping to get 6 figures by 30. Definitely achievable
    Start at 40k...OK.

    £12,000-£15,000. Not sure on the exact job yet.

    Seeing people on here wishing for 60-80k makes me weep for humanity.

    This thread makes me scared ;-; All these people so happy about how much they think they're going to earn, followed by others crushing their dreams into dust ..

    ANYWAY, I'm getting a MEng Computer Science degree from Durham! (If I get the grades)
    and apparently I'll earn £26k starting salary
    but now I feel less happy since everyone is saying £26k is nothing :'( *sniffles*
    I await my inevitable spiralling depression due to lack of money, followed by my quiet suicide at the age of 35
