Dear Friend,


As per 2010 values, it should work out around GBP 19,175 after taxes.

 

I hope this would help..

Warm Regards,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX say after taxes is that taking N.I. and Income Tax, together with the company car tax into account please?

 

So, I would bring home about £1600 a month or just a fraction under?

 

Sorry to be a pain!

 

Out of curiosity, what tax will I pay on the car?

Expert:  Rakhi Vasavada replied 3 years ago.

Dear Friend,

 

Yes, thats correct.

Regarding your car, as per the exact model of Ford Focus, it should be anywhere between 160-250 GBP Per year/

 

I hope this helps...

Warm Regards,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Per year?! Do you not mean per month? I'm sure company car tax is way more expensive than that. I was expecting about £200 a month.
Expert:  Rakhi Vasavada replied 3 years ago.

Dear Friend,

 

Sorry.. Sorry, a typing mistake.. Its per month. Sorry again for the mistake..

Warm Regards,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

LOL, no you're ok. I'm sure yuo've LOTS to answer.

So, just quickly could you please break down how my salary slip would read:

 

Basic

 

Company Car

 

NI

 

Tax

 

I'm being a pain I know, but I'm a sole income earner and need to ensure I'm making the right decision.

Expert:  Rakhi Vasavada replied 3 years ago.

Dear Friend,


To know your exact company car tax, you need to put in ALL the details like for older cars, Year of Registration, Month of Registration, Make, If Ford focus, then which, then exact model, then engine type and its strength, its fuel type, etc. So its not possible to provide you with "Exact" figures much of the precise information is missing.

 

However, I can give your break up of your salary without the car, which will NOT VARY MUCH than what I had said.


Taking your salary as GBP 25,000, it works out as ::

Gross Income £25,000.00

Taxable Income £17,525.00 £1,460.42 £337.02 £67.40

Tax £3,505.00

 

National Insurance £2,133.00


Take Home £19,362.00

 

I hope this helps... You are not a pain. Its my pleasure to assist you as much as I can.

Warm Regards,

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You're wonderful!

 

Making a monthly income of £1613.50

 

Ok, the other extreme and this will be my last question. A basic salary of £14,000 without any fringe benefits whatsoever. That is it. Am I right in thinking after tax that would be less than £1,000 per month? I always tend to work on monthly amounts.

 

What I'm trying to do you see is to work out if a larger salary with a further distance to travel will work out any more advantageous than a job on my doorstep paying significantly less.

 

 

Expert:  Rakhi Vasavada replied 3 years ago.

Dear Friend,

 

YES, that would work out around GBP 1100 per month LESS the car tax, taking it below 1000.

 

In this case, a larger salary with a further distance to travel will work out any more advantageous as per primary calculations.

 

I am sure this would help...
