please (or at least roughly - guessing it'll be on a "normal" tax code - whatever that is blush).

Friend of a friend has just resigned from her job as she's moving away, and the hours would be perfect for DH. But before I tell DH about the upcoming vacancy I need to work out whether we can actually "afford" it.

Thanks (oh and just a rough figure will be fine as I just need a figure to put into entitledto for a rough estimate of what we'd be entitled to)

800 * 12 = £9600.
Personal allowance = 6475.
So only £3125 is taxable.
Basic rate = 20%, 20% of £3125 = £625.
9600 - 625 = 8975.
8975/12 = £747.91 /month.

Double check my numbers, I'm bound to have made a mistake in there somewhere, but sounds about right to me.

sorry - I mean that the amount that this person currently takes home is £800 a month - so I need to know what the gross is (I think???)

I'm ok with numbers..........apart from when it comes to things like this.........

clop - I think alfa needs you to do it the opposite way.

she wants £800 net extrapolated to give gross

you are starting with £800 as gross and working out net

thank you ConFuschia - you explained what I need much better than I did smile

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 18:48:09

£9600 per year gives you £800 per month after tax, is that what you are after?

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 18:49:47

No it doesn't blush £1110 gives £798 per month

There is a simple tax calculator in plug in a few gross numbers and see what comes out

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 18:51:03

Arrgggghh I will give up, clearly I don't mean £1110 but £11100

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 18:53:33

hmm Eleven thousand dammit blush £11,000

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 18:54:24

Honestly I am rubbish with numbers, what on earth was I thinking posting on this thread grin

alwayslookingforanswers Thu 01-Oct-09 18:54:25

clop Thu 01-Oct-09 18:59:09

Oops, damnit, and I thought I was being so clever blush.

Lonicera Thu 01-Oct-09 19:08:29

Wilts I just put £11,000 on that calculator and got £792 pcm, so well done smile

Wilts Thu 01-Oct-09 19:12:03

I used a tax calculator too wink. My brain can't cope with typing out numbers let alone trying to work out calculations grin

Lonicera Thu 01-Oct-09 19:17:26
