While you will need to think about your national insurance, personal allowance and any higher rate tax changes that will be introduced from April 2019, this blog post sets out a rough guide of what you can expect to happen to your take-home pay as of April 2019.
It is important to note that these figures below are not completely definitive because tax rules can get very complicated. As a business owner you will have different factors to consider that will affect your take-home pay. Your employees may all have different factors to consider too.
As we stated, this is a rough guide of the likely impact to your take-home pay. If you really want to know how the tax changes will affect you and your employees it is worth speaking to a professional and experienced accountant. Like the team here at Direct Peak. We can tell you exactly what you can expect.
- You won’t see any changes if you earn £8,424 per annum or less
- As someone earning between £8,424.01 and £8.632 you may be slightly better off. This will be by around £25 a year or less.
- You could be up to £155 better off a year if you earn between £8,632.01 and £46,384 due to national insurance and personal allowance changes.
- Those earning between £46,384.01 and £50,024 will be better off when you take into account the national insurance, personal allowance and higher tax rate changes. It is tricky to say exactly how much. As a rough guide, the more you earn and the bigger the boost you will see in your take-home pay.
- As someone earning between £50,241.01 and £100,000 you will be paying £294 extra in national insurance each year. You will also get a boost of £860 due to the personal allowance and higher rate tax changes. Overall you could be £566 better off each year.
- While you will pay £294 more in national insurance then personal allowance changes will enable a gain for you in your take-home pay if you are earning between £100,000.01 and £123,700. It is just tricky to tell exactly how much you will be up in a year.
- If you earning more than £123,700 in a year then you will not get any personal allowance. However, the higher rate tax changes could result in a £730 boost per year to your take-home pay. But remember, £294 of this boost will go to your national insurance changes.
