Since there are many factors to consider when determining take-home pay, it can all seem a little overwhelming. ‘Personal allowances’ and ‘income tax bands’ are just the tip of the iceberg. When you’re simply in pursuit of a straight answer, navigating condition after condition can seem exhausting.
Are you financially better suited to being classified as a Limited Company? Perhaps you’ll see significantly better numbers if you instead check the box marked ‘Sole Trader’? Who could possibly tell? We can.
That is exactly why we’ve created this simple take-home pay calculator to help you find those answers, and find them fast. Simply fill out the appropriate fields below where demonstrated: (Company Type, Income, Accountant Fees and Expenses) and click ‘calculate’ to uncover your very own detailed breakdown…

Our Take-Home Pay Calculator makes a number of assumptions in order to calculate the figures in our calculations. These are detailed below.
These calculations are for illustrative purposes only. If you want a more accurate view of your earnings for the tax year 2019/20, simply contact us for a bespoke calculation.
All calculations are based on the income and expenses entered by you.
Total take-home pay is the net salary and dividends after our estimation of tax due.
Your result doesn’t include any reimbursed expenses. We believe this gives a fairer and more accurate picture of your take home pay.

We've always got our ears to the ground when it comes to interesting, useful and topical information relating to business and accountancy.
We love making videos that break down convoluted accountancy jargon into plain-talking, actionable and accessible facts.
In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
Our limited company accountants have a range of qualifications from The Institute Of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW) to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). We worry about the bye-laws, regulations and ethical guidelines of the ACCA so you don’t have to! That makes us an ACCA-accredited employer as well as a Professional Passport-accredited one!
At Nordens, we're committed to keeping our clients updated on all things business strategy and news. Each week we update our newsletter subscribers on what really matters in the big bad world of business. That way, you can stay one step ahead!
