How to calculate Tax and National Insurance? watch

1. Need help!

Lets say the rates are this

Band Taxable - income - Tax rate
Personal Allowance - Up to £11,000 - 0%
Basic rate - £11,001 to £43,000 - 20%
Higher rate - £43,001 to £150,000 - 40%
Additional rate - over £150,000 - 45%

and I had an annual salary of 45k. How would I calculate it?
Thanks.

I'm not familiar with the rates but according to this you'd pay £7200 in income tax and £4233 on national insurance.

From what I understand in your situation you'd pay 40% of 2000 and 20% of 32000((the different brackets only apply to values in that bracket, eg the 2000 comes from 40% being taxed on 45-43, the 32000 from 20% of 43000-11000) which also adds up to 7200
3. Type "£45000 after tax" into google

says you're left with £33,567

Hi

1. Minus the 11 000 from the 45k
2. The amount you are left with, is less than 43k so do the basic rate and find 20%

hope that helps
Thanks! What if your salary is like £100k, that's what i struggle to do because you have to work out the badi rate or something like that. Thank your so much.

You would work it out using the same princeiple.
100 000
1. Minus your tax free allowance (in this case is 11 000)
2. The amount you have left (89 000),you minus the 43k from (46 000) and you find 20% of that 43 000
3 then with the 46 000 left you find 40% of that.

Hope that helps
Sp in total I would have to pay 17.8k in tax?

thank you so much! ^_^

Welcome

You were right up to the 40%part where went wrong went you wrote "46000*0.4 = 9200"
Check that calculation it should= 18400 instead
So what should I write instead of 46k

I am so sorry, I'm pretty dumb at these stuff

Don't worry, I just understand numbers better than letters.
Hope this helps you to understand it.
