    If you work about 16 hours a week at £5-6 per hour (during term time) about how much would you pay in tax?

    My job in Norway pays £8 per hour (office intern at law firm), which is considered "good pay". How much would you earn in Britain for a similar job? What do most jobs available to students pay?

    If you earn less than £4000 (only a rough figure) you do pay any income tax at all. I think its around 25% above this. then 35% above 40k. These figures are very rough though.

    As far as I know its 0% up to £4k, 10% between £4-10k, 22% between £10k and around £30k, then 40% on all above that. So at say 16 hours at £5 p/h, that's £80 a week, which is roughly equal to £4k p/a, so you'll pay very little, if any, tax. National insurance is on anything you earn over £90 p/w. This are all from memory though, so correct me if I'm wrong please.

    I'm quite sketchy on this but its essentially another form of tax which goes into somewhere like the Social Security department. Can anyone help me out here?

    Erm I would have thought only if you were a british citizen, I think foreigners have to pay for it only towards NHS etc.

    Yeah it effects how much money you can get from the dole etc. My dad dosn't pay as he works for himself so he could never claim the dole.
