    I know this is a reeeeally random question and no one will know the exact answer but how much (roughly?) will someone be paying a month in tax and national insurance on a £12 000 PA salary?

    I know it will depend on factors but i'm trying to work out what my take home would be each month... :confused:

    Thanks for any help.

    Isn't it 21% tax or something like that. So £210 tax per month or £2520 per year.

    Don't quote me on that though! Not sure about the NI deductions.

    Income tax is charged at 20% on the excess over your annual 'personal allowance' (currently £6,475) up to £37,400, then 40% above that.

    Employees' National Insurance Contributions are 11% on the excess over £110 per week (£5,715 per year) up to £844 per week (£43,875 per year), then 1% above that.

    So, for a £12,000 salary:
    Income tax = (12,000-6,475)*20%=£1,105
    Employees' NICS = (12,000-5,715)*11%=£691
    Net income=£10,204

    But yes, www.listentotaxman.com is the best resource for questions like this.

    I like that you put this rubbish up after the person before you answered the question.
