UK Salary Calculator for macOS provides a simple numerical and graphical breakdown of your income. It is intended for use by residents (or prospective residents) of the United Kingdom. Companion iOS app also available.

Yearly, monthly, 4-weekly, weekly, daily and hourly breakdown of income tax (20%, 40% & 45%), national insurance contributions, pension contributions, student loan, employer's national insurance contributions, company car tax, fuel benefit charges, gross salary and net salary. It is also fully compatible with the new Scottish 5-tier tax system (19%, 20%, 21%, 41%, 46%) and 'S' tax codes.

It calculates your default tax allowance based on your age & income, and has facilities for using gross or net salary as an input, adding additional income, bonuses, additional allowances, customising student loan thresholds, adding salary sacrifices, childcare vouchers, marriage allowances, custom tax codes & deductions. It automatically reduces your personal allowance if you earn above the £100k income threshold.

UK Salary Calculator is fully reversible, meaning you can either enter your gross salary to see what your pay will be after deductions, or you can enter a net salary that you'd like to be your take home pay and UK Salary Calculator will tell you what you need to earn as a gross wage to make that happen. This app is therefore perfect for nannies, or individuals who employ a nanny, given their typical net-pay arrangements.

It is useful for employee's and employer's alike; whether you are looking to check your pay packet to ensure it's right, or to see what your earnings should/could be. It is also useful to see what your take home earnings will be in the next financial year or in another job. All calculations are based on data made available by HMRC and the Student Loan Company.

The company car tax feature allows you to input your car's P11D value & CO2 emissions and the app will automatically calculate the appropriate tax deductions and fuel benefit charge, if required.

Salary, salary sacrifices, allowances, and deductions can be input on a £'s/Year, £'s/Month, £'s/4-Week or £'s/Week basis. Pension can be added as a percentage or an amount.

One-click copy to clipboard function for individual calculated values, or you can quickly and easily share results via the email export option.

Good app easy to use, but would welcome some additional features


I have found this app easy to use for simple straightforward tax calculations. However it would be more helpful if dividends, interests, extra pension and charity donations could be included in the calculations. These features will make it more competitive.

Developer Response

Hi there! Charity donations can be added in the advanced settings. We'll take a look at your other suggestions to see if they can be added to a future version. Thanks very much for the feedback :)

Absolutely Brilliant


Brilliant app, Simple to use. I do however wish there was the ability to set some settings as a default pre-set - i.e my student loan year is always going to be the same and it woukld be great to be able to set it as a default.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback - this is definitely something we are working on and looking into for a future update :)

Nice app but settings don’t save


Nice app and simple to use however whenever I change and save the settings they always revert back to the default if I reopen the app. If settings were saved even after I close the app then it would be 5 stars.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. We're constantly working to improve the app and all feature requests are logged and worked on when possible. Your kind feedback is appreciated.
