    If I was to work would I have to pay tax, I am 21?

    When I was looking for jobs online it showed £19 per hour for a social worker job, would that be before or after taxation?

    Your age doesn't matter. It depends on whether you earn over £9440 per year.

    If you earn over the threshold in any given period it doesn't matter what your hourly rate is, or what your age is, you will have to pay tax. For example if you worked 1000 hours at £10 an hour you'd have to pay, if you worked one hour per year at £10000 an hour, you'd also have to pay.

    The advertised hourly rate would always be before tax.

    so if I earn below £9440 I am excluded from tax?

    In this case for a social worker job at 319 per hour full time is over £9440 but will the £19 be before or after taxation?

    No idea. Usually the amount per hour quoted is before tax.

    £319 p/h? I assume you slipped on the shift+3 keys and mean £19 p/h?

    It will be before income taxation deductions.

    You'll also be liable for National Insurance contributions of 12% on everything over £109 per week.

    The same way you pay tax on everything you buy @ 20% on top. You have to pay the gov 20% of your earnings above a certain threshold, which is different for each job or circumstance your in.

    If your employed by a company, that company will take money from your pay check to pay the tax man each month or week or however it's paid.

    What people miss out though who are employed not self-employed is, you can still claim some of your tax back by doing an employed tax return in April of every year.

    You basically tell them that you've spent a certain amount of money to do your job and if its on the govs list of things you can claim back that amount will be taken off the amount over the taxable amount you've earned.

    Blugh. Rubbish description. But my point is, unless your self employed and you do your own tax return every year, your going to pay 20% each month, but only if you earn over a certain bracket each month.
