    I've just moved schools and authority and got a massive shock when i just checked my pay. i've gone from 0.5 to full time and was therefore expecting my pay to be roughly double what it was previously.

    it's nowhere near that. it turns out my TLR2 hasn't been added (grrrr!!) and i fear i may also be on the wrong tax code.

    apparently no one can look at this until tomorrow. so in the meantime, before i collapse in a heap on the floor, can anyone tell me what their take-home is on this pay grade? i realise that the TLR2 is a scale and i'm not certain of my amount (will check tomorrow), but a ball-park figure would be really helpful at this point.
    thank you in advance.

    You can find out by entering your specific details into the pay calculator here…

    You may well find that your pension contributions have taken you over the threshold. It happened to me when I got a promotion. Can take a big chunk..

    You will be in for a bigger shock next April,when you pay 1.4% extra in National Insurance contributions on your salary !!

    Even if gross pay doubles, your take-home pay will nowhere near do that.
    If you earn £20k, say, then only about £10k is taxed (working very roughly).
    If you earn £40k, you are taxed on about £30k, so you'll be paying three times as much tax.
