    Salary & Tax Calculator

    Salary & Tax Calculator 29th Nov 17 at 1:59 PM
    Looking for guidance in the absence of getting through to HMRC.


    I've been offered a new employment opportunity which will have an annual salary plus cash allowance in place of a company car.


    I want to find the best means of calculating how much this new package will mean I will earn per month less tax so that I can compare this against what I currently earn after tax.


    I also live in Scotland and will need to check if different rules apply in Scotland compared to the rest of the UK.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Thanks.

    i use www.listentotaxman.com to calc take home pay


    Generally car allowance is just seen as additional income so added to salary and taxed (and NI) at the normal tax rates, with no change to your tax code.


    A company car is seen as a taxable benefit, the company must provide the info to HMRC and HMRC will reduce your tax code accordingly.


    As far as I am aware, there are no differences between Scotland and the rest of the UK in relation to income tax rates or taxable benefits.
    Mortgage = 113,495 (May 2009) 72330 Feb 18
    Halifax CC 0% = 0!!! Car Loan = 0!!!!!
    PAYDBX16 #106 = 12377/12377 (100%)

    You may need to be careful when calculating your taxable monthly salary if you are paying into a company pension

    You might find only the salary is counted for pension purposes and no pension accrues on the "car allowance". So taxable salary each month might be along lines of,

    Salary 3000
    Less 8% pension 240
    Taxable salary 2760
    Car allowance 400
    Total taxable pay 3160
