Depending on your type of employment, your gross salary for the period is worked out to get your weekly,fortnightly, 4 weekly, or monthly income.

To begin calculating your take home pay; Personal Allowance: First your personal allowance is applied to your income. How this is applied depends on your taxcode from HMRC. Your personal allowance is the amount you are allowed to earn as an individual, before tax is payable on your income, in one tax year. Simply put, the personal allowance is usually divided into 12 parts and applied monthly for people paid monthly. Personal allowance divided into 52 parts and applied weekly for people paid weekly. Personal allowance is applied by deducting the applicable amount of your annual personal allowance from the relevant part of your salary. Under PAYE this process can be a little complicated. However, even if you don't work for the full year, you must still get the full allowance, hence a tax refund is possible. Once your personal allowance has bee applied, other allowable costs such as certain pension payments are taken off, and what remains is your taxable income. tax is applied to your taxable income in bands, for example the basic rate of tax for individuals is 20% , the higher rate is 40% and the additional rate is 45% for folk whose taxable income exceeds £150,000 per annum. National Insurance is levied separately from PAYE over the whole of your salary subject to thresholds and bands different from those used for PAYE.
