Just wondering how much tax and NI you would be stopped if you earned £18000 as dp has seen an ad for a driving job.

it's roughly what dh gets and we take home approx £950 a month - but we pay our rent out of his wages first, so probably looking at £1050 take home.

Oh thats odd cos dp earns £14500 now and take home pay is £962

try this .

It will be roughly right but won't include any tax credits you qualify for.

jessicasmummy Sun 19-Jun-05 12:19:26

ah, just thought.... dh also has insurance policies and stuff come out - hang on - let me do the sums!

.... ok, probably looking more like £1150-1200 take home i think.

DH pays approx £300 tax and £135 NI

Dh is paid 23,200 and his take home is 1300

(sorry pound sign doesnt work!)

that link is great!!!

Hmmm dp is pulling a face now. It would be 6 days a week see and at the mo he only does 5.

Looks like we'd only get roughly £200 extra, which would be fine with me but obviously i'm not doing the job.

That link is pretty accurate - just tried it with DH's salary and compared the answer to his P60, the annual figures were only out by £1.12 Tax and 55p on the NI.

Just checked with IR and our tax creidts would be reduced by £120 a month so we'd only enbd up being £80 a month better off.

God i dunno, damned if you do, damned if you don't

Surely you have to look at the longterm and think that if you have a job then you have the option to progress within that job, gain experience and hopefully a better job in the
future.

And anyway, surely tax credits are to support families who need help - not to subsidise people who can get a job. Apologies for my slightly inflammatory remark but it is a point of view.

Sorry nutcracker - that was unduly harsh. I apologise, don't know what came over me.

acnebride Mon 20-Jun-05 20:09:15

Any other perks or benefits, or possibility of overtime? not that I'd want to do overtime if I was already working 6 days a week. sorry.

acnebride has a good point - would you get a subsidised car for example and save money you are spending atm. Also what are the longer term prospects to increase that basic wage? £80 pm is still an improvement
