TLR2a - Take home pay - Querying tesfaq calculator?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by impulce, Jun 13, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    As of September I will be moving to M4 and be recieving a TLR of £2535.
    When I put this into the TESFAQ Pay Calculator - it equates to the TLR being £117 extra a month.
    But If you take £2535, take the 22% tax off it, and then split it into 12 monthly payments - it works out at £165. The previous postholder also said this seemed a smaller amount than she thought - but she's been doing it on a part time contract so its harder to work out.
    Am I working it out wrong and the pay calculator is right, or is there a mistake somewhere?

    You can't quite work it out the way you have.
    To work out the tax, you need to first remove the pension contribution. Then work out the tax/NI/student loan etc. Then take all of those things off the £2535 (tax/NI/pension/student loan) and only then divide by 12.
    The TES calculator tends to be accurate and I would suggest that the £117 will be closer to the truth.

  3. Ahh OK thanks, that makes sense.
