Domestic Staff Tax Calculator

From salary to pocket – translating earnings in the household staffing employment scene

There is no disguising that salary is often a key consideration when candidates apply for positions through Irving Scott. To help potential domestic, private and household staff hopefuls work out what their likely earnings will be, we have incorporated this Domestic Staff Tax Calculator to help provide a clear picture from the outset.   What must be remembered when considering applying for a private service position are the perks which come with the position. For example, the numerous financial benefits of taking a live-in role as a nanny, butler, chef or household manager such as all housing expenses, food costs and often private vehicle expenditure are covered by the employer. However candidates are still keen to discover what their take home salary will be so as to make a calculated career decision bearing all factors in mind. Our Domestic Staff tax calculator works by breaking down the candidate’s gross salary details. The salary is quoted in sterling and the calculations refer to positions offered within the United Kingdom. The tool takes into consideration the tax year, the percentage of student loan that the contributor is repaying, the age of candidates, whether they have special needs and then uses the gross salary per year quote in relation to the position as the starting point for laying out the guidelines. All positions on our books are quoted as gross. So, for example, as outlined in our Salary guide, a chef could expect to be offered between £45,000 and £110,000 per annum. If we were to seek a chef at the starting salary, he or she could work out the net amount in their account by tapping in their details to our household staff salary calculator. An average applicant is aged under 65 and is paying off a student loan from a course studied before 2012. This is what he or she can expect after tax:  

Gross income£45,000.00£3,750.00£865.38£173.08£23.08
Personal allowance£11,850.00£987.50£227.88£45.58£6.08
Taxable income£33,150.00£2,762.50£637.50£127.50£17.00
Student Loan£2,400.30£200.03£46.16£9.23£1.23
National Insurance£4,389.12£365.76£84.41£16.88£2.25
Net income£31,580.58£2,631.72£607.32£121.46£16.20

The Domestic Staff tax calculator is only one part of the picture. We are happy to discuss salary expectations with candidates and to provide advice about how to move up the earnings ladder.
