UK Salary Calculator

Our salary calculator will provide you with an illustration of the costs associated with each employee. You will see the costs to you as an employer, including tax, NI and pension contributions.

We offer you the chance to provide a gross or net salary for your calculations. We strongly recommend you agree to a gross salary, rather than a net salary. This is because should a tax code change for any reason it will mean that you, as the employer, will have to bear any additional costs incurred as the gross amount would need to increase to keep the net the same.
