Happy New Tax Year!

Plans for 2018/19?

I intend to pay more tax in 2018/19 than I did in 2017/18.

I have to do a tax return in three countries this year!

I’m so excited I could cry!

I think Im about £7 better off this year
(until inflation is taken into account, making me about -£2000)


Any of our Scotland-based users excited about/for the new starter and intermediate tax bands?

Trump’s so called “historical tax cut” has had ZERO effect on me.

Fuck that guy. I will NOT get fooled again.

I overpaid PAYE tax last year by the tune of 4-5,000 so looking forward to sorting a tax rebate out in a few weeks

Well in the balance between extra pension contributions and the raising of the student loan baseline, I may well maintain a status quo. Exciting!

Fucking hell, that 45% rate is miles off.

I’m going to have to think of a more creative way to pay more tax.

Assuming you’re on the normal tax code, you’re now taxed as follows:

£0 - £11,850 = 0%
£11,851 - £13,850 = 19%
£13,851 - £14,150 = 20%
£14,151 - £43,730 = 21%
£43,731 - £100,000 = 41%
£100,001 - £123,700 = 61.5%
£123,701 - £150,000 = 41%
£150,001+ = 46%


used this

to establish that between my wife and I the net difference will be minimal! YAY!

Right, not to labour the point here, but the budget calculator says I’d be £20 a month better off next year if my salary was the same.

Why the fuck are people who get paid too much already getting a tax cut?! Fuck off, Tories.

If you buy £50 worth of fags a month then you’ll be giving that £20 back to the govt.
