    PAYE amounts after student loan paid off

    PAYE amounts after student loan paid off 13th Sep 19 at 3:33 PM
    So up until last month I was paying off my student loan via PAYE via my umbrella company. The loan deduction was around 120 a week as I'm paid weekly. The PAYE amount per week was around 292.

    Since I've had the student loan deduction removed my PAYE deduction has gone up roughly by the amount the loan deduction was. I was under the impression I'd be paying nearly the same amount of PAYE.

    Has my umbrella made a mistake or am I just misunderstanding how it works?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you put a 'salary' into a salary calculator it doesn't make any difference to tax/NI/pension contributions when the student loan is removed. But umbrella company pay can be quite different to a standard employee salary arrangement. You should really ask your umbrella company to clarify the situation.

    Also, check your tax code hasn't changed.
    Ooh, when did I get that star?

    Your student loan deduction is an amount calculated as a set percentage of all earnings (gross) over the threshold.

    Once you stop paying your student loan, you won’t have the deduction, so your take home pay should increase by the amount that was going to student loan repayments. This is for PAYE, if you have dividend income the repayments may be calculated differently.

    It does depend how the umbrella company calculates your income.
