    40% Tax rate. I'm astonished they haven't thought of making us slaves, that would be much more efficent.

    Depends what your ambitions are etc.

    I think I could, on my own, live comfortably on about £17,000 net, but I would prefer on more.
    that gives you about 1100 take home

    i know i used to earn it before being made redundant

    :confused:

    How so?

    You'd only pay about £2k tax on £17k a year. By my calculations you'd take home just under £15k, not including NI contributions.

    The difference between a £30k and £40k salary is about £120 per wk which isn't *that* much anyway
    It's approximately 50 pints, as a student, that's a lot of money.

    Well I don't know about you guys, but I don't want to be 'fine' on 25k peryear. I'm not totally money motivated.. but I will be going into an industry where I know an average wage is £55K+

    Am I right in saying that there is no difference in income (after tax) between earning £30,000/yr and earning £40,000/yr
