  • The tax years you want to claim for
  • Your gross income - the total income before tax
  • Total amount of tax paid in those tax years

Tax Rebate CalculatorWorking out your PAYE take-home pay?

When you pay your tax through the Pay As You Earn system, HMRC takes a bite out of your money before you even get it. The cash the taxman grabs this way goes toward your Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions, pension contributions and any Student Loan repayments your making. What you actually take home after all that is based on your tax-free Personal Allowance.

Pretty much everyone qualifies for some kind of Personal Allowance. Your allowance shows up in your tax code and determines how much you can earn before the taxman gets his cut. For the 2020/21 tax year, for example, the standard Personal Allowance is £12,500. Anything you earn up to that threshold is tax-free.

After you’ve used up your Personal Allowance, you move into the basic rate Income Tax bracket. If your earnings are high enough, the top end of them might push into the higher rate, meaning even more tax comes gets taken. Looking again at the 2020/21 tax year, the “tax bands” look like this:

  • Up to £12,500: 0%
  • £12,501 to £50,000: 20% (basic rate)
  • £50,001 to £150,000: 40% (higher rate)
  • £150,001 or more: 45%

With your Income Tax out of the way, you've got National Insurance Contributions (NICs) to consider. Your NICs go toward things like keeping up your State Pension eligibility, and the 2020/21 thresholds looks like this:

  • Earnings under £9,500 a year: 0%
  • Earnings between £9,500 and £50,000 a year: 12%
  • Anything over £50,000 a year: 2%
