    guys, quick net salary question for those of you that know better than me the tax system in UK: how much you pocket with a £45k salary in the UK after tax per month?
    I am talking about someone working all year round, not a summer intern.
    thanks!

    very useful, thanks!
    one more question, probably a silly one for a UK resident: why is there the "exclude national insurance" option? if someone pays the private pension contribution can avoid paying national insurance?
    thanks again

    Well, I'm only young so not sure myself.

    My understanding is that everyone pays national insurance, there is no 'opt-out' as it were, regardless of if you have a private pension etc.

    I think the option is there because in some instances if you're on a very low income or only working very few hours/part-time then you're not required to make national insurance contributions. Could be wrong though.

    As a banker, you'll certainly be contributing a lot though, haha

    Not in base.
    You probably heard a bunch of VIEs who think they're analysts chat that.
    At SG, back office gets 45. FO gets more

    Is it a confirmed fact that B/O at SG get £45k? Is this for first year analysts?

    I am not familiar with the UK tax systems, so i wonder how much of the summer intership salary goes to nationa insurance. Also, am I right that you pay no income tax as it is below 10k treshold?

    You pay income tax via PAYE and then have it refunded at a later date if your overall yearly earnings don't go over the threshold because your pro-rata salary is in the higher income bracket, that's my understanding anyway.

    You can avoid paying tax if you have a P45/P60 and the employer essentially indicates it's a fixed term contract showing what your earnings will be. I just don't think the banks bother with so many interns.

    It's what I've been told by several people who got in the grad scheme. I did not verify this with SG Hr or check the contracts.
    Yes, first years in the grad scheme. May differ if you're not on the grad scheme
