Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

    Be happy, accept those you care for, and live your life in a manner true to yourself, those you care for, and the values you hold dear to your heart.

      Hi DizzyLizzy21,

      As ShyBoy says, Pro Rata means proportion of a full salary. As your are being employed 30 hours a week, and an average working week is 37, you'll be getting about 81&#37; (although this depends on what your employer counts as a full working week).

      Per Annum means a year.

      Your Income Tax will currently be 20% of your income, although your first &#163;6,475 won't be taxed (assuming this is your only income).

      Your National Insurance is currently roughly 11% of your salary (exact contributions depend on a number of factors).

      If you are a recent graduate and taken out a student loan you'll have that automatically deducted from your salary. Find out more about paying back a student loan.

      Your 6% pension contribution means that 6% of your gross salary can be put into a pension scheme (usually matched by a contribution from your employer).

      (the following is an unchecked calculation, i can't be held responsible if it's wrong!)

      Roughly this means your pro-rata gross salary is &#163;15,751. You'll have to pay &#163;1855 in Income Tax and about &#163;1000 in NI. Which means you'll get about &#163;1070 a month (excluding any pension or student loan contributions).

      All that said, the easiest thing to do is ask your HR / peronnel to tell you what your take-home pay (known as your net salary) will be. They should be able to give you a fairly accurate estimate.

      Hope this helps...

        I have found the following website to be quite useful in working out net pay, and has options for student loan and pension deductions.
