Understanding Your Take-Home Pay: The UK Wage Take-Home Calculator

Our intuitive wage calculator is designed to give you a clear picture of your take-home pay, also known as net salary. Whether you’re an employee wondering about your net pay after tax and National Insurance contributions or a contractor under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), this tool is tailored for you.

How the Wage Take Home Calculator Works

To use the calculator, you need to input your gross salary – that’s your income before any deductions. Next, select your tax scheme: PAYE (Pay As You Earn) for regular employment or CIS for those in the construction sector. The calculator then works out your income tax, National Insurance contributions, and other factors like pension contributions and student loan repayments, if applicable.

Key Features and Considerations

  • Personal Allowance: The amount of income you don't have to pay tax on – our calculator factors this in.
  • National Insurance Contribution: This is calculated based on your salary, contributing to benefits like the State Pension.

Tax Code and Other Deductions

Your tax code plays a crucial role in determining your income tax. While our calculator uses standard tax codes, any taxable benefits, or unique circumstances should be considered separately.
