Being a bit dumb - working out your wages: How?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by disguise, Feb 6, 2012.

  1. Sorry to sound a bit dumb but accounts were never my strong point - I need to fill out a job application and it's asking my current salary. I thought it was £34000 and something but looking at my wage slip, my total payments before deductions times by 12 is £36000 and something. Have I worked it out right?

    Isn't your "top line" in the top line of your payslip? Mine is.
    However, have you had a pay increase within the last year? That would make multiplying one payslip's amount by twelve wrong.
    If I don't have a payslip to hand, and can't remember my salary I can look it up in my union diary (top of maingrade scale) or on one of several websites.
  3. The trouble is I am on a TLR point too and nothing anywhere tells you exactly what that is. I asked the Head's PA and all she could tell me was I am on M5 plus TLR2b plus fringe allowance. The only pay increase I've had in the last 12 months has been like a couple of quid due to tax variations.

    M5 is a fixed sum, as is the London fringe allowance, but your TLR can be a moveable feast. Doesn't your school provide you with an annual pay assessment/statement that shows you the amount of each pay element?

  6. I think I have found the issue. I just multiplied my gross pay (not inc TLR) by 12 and it shows me the M6 amount inc fringe allowance. I had a feeling I was on M6 when the PA e mailed me so will check tomorrow if this is correct.
