Hourly Wage Tax Calculator 2016/17

The Hourly Wage Tax Calculator uses tax information from the tax year 2016 / 2017 to show you take-home pay. See where that hard-earned money goes - with UK income tax, National Insurance, student loan and pension deductions. More information about the calculations performed is available on the about page.

This is the hourly rate you are paid, before tax or other deductions have been made.
Enter the number of hours you work each week, excluding any overtime. Overtime can be entered separately.
If you know it, you can enter your tax code in here. If you don't know your tax code, simply leave this blank.
Monthly Overtime@
@
If you do any overtime, enter the number of hours you do each month and the rate you get paid at - for example, if you did 10 extra hours each month at time-and-a-half, you would enter "10 @ 1.5". 5 hours double time would be "5 @ 2".
%If you contribute to a pension scheme, enter the percentage you contribute to the "pension" field.
Before April 2016, if your pension was considered "contracted-out", you paid lower National Insurance at band D or F. This is no longer the case.
Enter the monthly value of any childcare vouchers you receive as part of salary sacrifice. If you joined the scheme before 6th April 2011, tick the box.
AgeBefore April 2016, your age affected your tax-free allowance. This is no longer the case, but National Insurance is still affected by age. For the 2016/17 tax year, this is your age on 6th April 2016.
 Married people over the age of 75 get a tax rebate - tick this box if this applies to you.
Tick the "Blind" box if you are registered blind, as this affects your personal tax-free allowance.
If you do not pay National Insurance contributions, for instance, if you are over state pension age, tick the "No NI" box.
Student LoanThere are now two methods of repaying Student Loans. If you started your course before 1st September 2012, tick "Plan 1". If you started your course after 1st September 2012, tick "Plan2".

Using The Hourly Wage Tax Calculator

To start using The Hourly Wage Tax Calculator, simply enter your hourly wage, before any deductions, in the "Hourly wage" field in the left-hand table above. In the "Weekly hours" field, enter the number of hours you do each week, excluding any overtime. If you know your tax code you can enter it, or else leave it blank.

If you do any overtime, enter the number of hours you do each month and the rate you get paid at - for example, if you did 10 extra hours each month at time-and-a-half, you would enter "10 @ 1.5". 5 hours double time would be "5 @ 2".

If you make contributions to a pension scheme, enter the percentage that you contribute in the "Pension" field. The "Contracted out" field depends on how your pension scheme is considered by HMRC. More information is available in the tooltip - if in doubt, leave this box ticked.

If you use salary sacrifice to receive childcare vouchers, enter the amount you receive each month into the Childcare vouchers field. If you joined the voucher scheme before 6th April 2011, tick the box - otherwise, leave the box unticked.

Choose your age range from the options provided, and tick the "Married", "Blind" or "Student Loan" box if any of these apply to you. When you have entered your details, click on the "Calculate" button to see how your take-home pay is calculated. Results will be shown in the right-hand table above.
