UK Income Tax Information

The amount of UK income tax you pay on your salary in a given tax year will depend on how much of your income is above your Personal Allowance limit and how much of your income falls in each of the income tax bands.

Like many countries, the UK has a progressive tax system with tax being paid at different rates depending on how high your income is. In the UK, the employer withholds your income tax and pays it to the tax authorities every month. Below is a breakdown of the tax bands:

England, Wales, and Northern Ireland

Band Taxable Income Tax Rate
Personal Allowance Up to £12,570 0%
Basic Rate £12,571 to £50,270 20%
Higher Rate £50,272 to £150,000 40%
Additional Rate over £150,000 45%

Scotland

Higher Rate £43,663 to £150,000 41%
Top Rate over £150,000 46%

There is also an income limit of £100,000 per tax year. For every £2 in earnings above this limit, £1 is deducted from your Personal Allowance.

National Insurance Rates

National Insurance (NI) is a contribution that is deducted from your salary and is used to pay for certain government benefits such as your state pension, jobseeker's allowance and allowance for maternity leave. There are four different NI levels but most people are in Class 1 NI.

The table below covers the Class 1 NI contributions that most taxpayers are likely to see on their payslips.
