Hey there!

Does anyone know anything about pro-rata pay and tax?

I received this information:
Working 30 hours per week/39 weeks per year.
Full time pay: 20,344
Which they said it equates to an actual salary of approximately £14,037

Would this be my take home or before tax?

Which makes a difference by about £200.

Pro rata before tax will be ~£15,649.

There are tax calculating websites that you can look at for your take-home pay.

If the £20344 is before tax, so is the £14037.

Normally you are given the gross salary as there are other things that may affect the tax deductions.

Pre tax.

When I use the calculator it says yearly 16,275.20

Take home 14,707.14

Which is the approx salary then are giving me, but I don't know if the 14,000 they are quoting is before tax🤷‍♀️

If the full-time salary quoted is also for a full year, then pro-rating it for 30 hours per week AND for 39 weeks per year takes you under the tax threshold I think, so you would only pay national insurance - that's presuming your tax code is the standard one.

How many hours a week is full time? Do you get holiday as well? This would normally be included pro rata as well.

So if full time is 52 weeks inc 4 weeks holiday of 40 hours, you should be able to work out the hourly rate.

Is the full time equivalent over 39 weeks too? How many hours is full time?

All salaries are quoted gross before tax deductions (your tax deductions are personal, you may have tax underpaid being deducted, student loans etc so what applies to one person may not apply to another so you would never compare net.

I assume it's a term time contract with the 39 weeks.

I agree the figure will be before tax/NI/pension, we don't give net (after deductions) salary figures out in our payroll department.

They will tell you the amount before any tax (or other deductions - NI, pension being the obvious 2) are removed, because not everyone has the same tax code.
So, that 14, 037 will have deductions taken off.
