Im working a second job so need to pay basic rate tax on this second income. Anyone any idea how much this is? Am I right to think it's 20% of total I earn plus NI? So 20% tax with no tax free allowance?
Thanks x

Yes, that's right. 20% on whole amount, plus NI

Yes. Payroll calculators will give you figures if you want to know annual, monthly, weekly amounts.

You can ask the tax office to split your tax free allowance between 2 employers if that helps?

I did a few years ago when I had 2 jobs but my combined income was still under the tax threshold - otherwise I would've ended up paying tax on the 2nd job even though my overall income was under 10k.
