just accepted a job on pro rata and thought i'd calculated it right.

Just rang to accept job and just looked at my figures and think i've massively f'*!&d up!

Please can someone with a brain work out what my salary would be?

Full time is 37.5 hrs per week on £18,577 per year, giving £1,178 after tax (approx with 4% to pension).

Job is 21 hours per week would it be £11,156 per year, giving £771 after tax (approx & 4% pension).

I've used a salary calculator and it now says it would only be £600 a month..... HELP

If it is £600 I need to unaccept the job!!!!!

it's £9.52 per hour therefore for 21 hours = 200.06 per week or £866.93 per month gross depends on your tax code as to net pay.
Would only give you £10403.16 per year

By my quick calculations, 21 hours would only net you an annual salary of £10,403.12 (pre tax).

If I (or you) are correct, then yes you're stuffed if you need >£600 a month.

*edit* As above, I took too long :p

18,577 / 52 = 357.25 (per week)
357.25 / 37.5 = 9.52.6 (per hour)
9.52.6 * 21 = 200.06 (per week)
200.06 * 52 = 10,403.12 (per year)

I don't know your tax code, but when i did a calculation i got:

aprox £9.53 an hour x 37.5 x 52weeks = £18577

£9.53 x 21 hours x 52 weeks = £10403.12

37.5 hours = £1,228.53 after tax

21 hours = £758.53 after tax

*lol too slow*

200.06 * 52 = 10,403.12 per year

I'm going to say this...^^^^ so basically, yes... I think you need a re-think on acceptance of the job.

Thank you all for your help, still really scared!!!!!

Everyones figures range quite a bit BUT am I right in thinking it's around £730 in my hand each month?

Unfortunately I keep all my salary slips in work so haven't a clue what my tax code is, all I remember is there is an 'L' in it!

ps. I'm asking my existing boss if they'd keep me on for 2 days a week (fingers crossed) so i'll effectively still be full time.

Great motto. I think the suffragettes had first dibs on it though.

I got the £600 from a salary site.

Yes, my tax code is 647L.

Your yearly gross for 21 hours would be 10403.12
If you consider standard Tax code which would be 643L then the following holds true

Monthly Gross = £ 866.92
Tax = £ 58.53
Pension deduction = £ 34.68
National Insurance = £ 42.93
Net Take Home = £ 730.78

Hope this helps

Also depending on your circumstances (obviously) check on your tax credits to boost you income, who also help with child care if needed
