The very top QCs can earn up to £1,000,000 a year. Quite a large amount earn over £500,000 a year. Many of the middle ranking juniors earn £100,000 or more. Even the legal aid ones earn a good salary; in the top tax band, but not like the others. City solicitors get paid similar amounts and high ranking solicitors can earn a very, very good wage.

I can't say but you are right it is low-salary but there are high rewards later in the career. By 30 you would be on a good wage.

Well if you became a succesful film or pop star, you'd prolly do quite well for yourself! People in management positions always seem to get paid rather well too.
However when I was researching Engineering job prospects, I heard that the Chief Engineer at McLaren F1 is paid £2 million a year! It really all depends on how well you can do your job I guess.
Adrian Newey at Mclaren Mercedes Grand Prix Team is worth every penny of his £2m salary. It was in 1998 when he actually got £2m per year, i think it has increased to £3m ish following the 2001 Rahal-Newey saga, Ron Dennis was desperate to keep him on. Well worth the money, the 1990 cars in F1 (Williams) were dominated by Newey designs.
1992 - WCC + WDC
1993 - WCC + WDC
1994 - WCC
1995 - WCC
1996 - WCC + WDC
1997 - WCC + WDC
1998 - WCC + WDC
1999 - Mclaren (WDC with Hakkinen)

clearly money well spent on Mclaren's part.

Being a rich solicitor is easier than being a rich Barrister because they have set salaries, whereas Barrister's are self employed and so it depends on the cases they get. Plus around 20 per cent of their wages after tax goes to their tenancy in chambers. Also they won't get paid straight away and can often get paid for a case years later..

if you are employed at 50,000 a year, in England you are paying 40& tax that is you pay 20,000 to the government a year, so you are left with 30,000, with other taxes to pay? So 50,000 is not that great here, though it would be good for other countries with less income tax!

you know very little....... the government tax at 40 % if you earn over 40,000
so if you earnt 40,100 they would deduct 40 % of that LOL, cuz if they did you might as well earn 39,000

they would tax 20 % of 40,000 and anything over 40,000 is taxed at 40 %

Umm - that's not how income tax works

The first £4,615pa is tax free (this is higher for people over 65 and higher again for over 75s)

The next £1,960 (ie income earned between £4,615 and £6,575) is taxed at 10% - so if you were earning £6,575 you would pay 10% tax on the highest £1,960 - £196pa (2.9% overall).

The next £28,539 (ie income between £6,575 and £37,075) is taxed at 20% - so if you were earning £37,075 you would pay £196 + (20% of 28,539) = £5,903pa (15.9% of your overall earnings).

All income *above* £37,075 is taxed at 40%...so at £40k you would pay £5,903 + (40% of £2,925) = £7,073pa (17.7% of your overall earnings)

sorry - I didn't realise that your first paragraph was you summarising the previous post

(although it isn't quite so clear cut as above £40k at 40% below at 20 or 25% - as I explained it's anything above £37,075 at 40% and below that you're taxed at either 20%, 10% or 0%)

yeah, well 37k is nearly 40 k so i just say 40 k to make it easier

so for instance if someone is on 60 k
find 20 % of 37 k then add that onto 40 % of 23 k
thats wat u get left when u get taxed
the economy is ****
