    Quick question 10th Oct 16 at 8:13 PM
    My company matches the 5 percent that i pay every month into my pension, however the figure i pay is 5 percent of the figure left after tax and NI deductions basically 5 per cent of my take home pay. Obviously if the 5 percent was of the gross figure it would be significantly more i presume that this is correct

  • Who do you think came out best in the Corbyn v May battle tonight?

  • Clever by Paxman; subtly testing out "strong & stable" by focusing on u-turns on Brexit view, social care, self employed tax & election date

  • Ps sadly i got in too late to have seen Corbyn, hence why no comment on his performance
