Read a full breakdown of the tax you pay: Tax Rates 2017/18

IMPORTANT! This is only a ready reckoner that makes standard assumptions to estimate your tax breakdown. There are many other possible variables, for a definitive source check your tax code and speak to the tax office. This calculator assumes you're employed, as self-employed national insurance rates are different. For higher- and top-rate taxpayers, this calculator assumes the English, Welsh & Northern Irish tax bands. We're working with the provider to get the Scottish bands in, but the results will be slightly out at the moment. Source:

Repay Student Loan (Eng & Wales post-2012)

If you're an English or Welsh student, and started university in 2012 or later, and took out a Student Loan Company loan, then this is repaid through the PAYE system, known as 'Plan 2' repayments.

You begin to repay the loan once your earnings go above a certain threshold, currently £21,000. Student loans will be repaid at a rate of 9% of the additional income over and above this threshold. Tick the box to include the repayment in your calculations.

If you're a Scottish or Northern Irish student and started university in 2012 or after, or started university between 1998 and 2011 anywhere, then you'll need to select the other 'Plan 1' repayment option, "Repay Student Loan (Scot, NI & E&W pre-2012)".

If you took out a student loan before 1998, you have to repay this by direct debit, not through the PAYE system. This means it can't be included in this calculator.
