Get an answer to your financial question online Reader Question:

How do I calculate my wages per year, after taxes?

My response:

I could give you the long winded answer but instead I prefer the simple one. By entering your gross pay into this online PAYE calculator it will tell you your net pay as well as the amount of income tax and national insurance you will have to pay.


Who said finance was complicated?

I hope that helps
