Gross to Total Cost Calculator

The Total Cost is an important figure for domestic employers to keep in mind when budgeting for their staff. The Total Cost is what the employer's total outgoings will be regarding the employee's salary.

Use the calculator to work out an approximate total cost from your employee's gross wage. Enter the gross wage per week or per month and you will see the total cost per week, per month and per annum appear.  

Please note that the figures are rounded, so not exact, and that they are based on a standard tax code.

The calculations explained
  • Net pay is the employee's take-home pay
  • Gross pay includes the Employee's National Insurance and Tax contribution. The figure can be used for employment contract purposes.
  • Total Cost includes Employers National Insurance and the employee's gross pay. This figure allows families to budget correctly for their employee.

We recommend agreeing a gross salary with your employee.

Please note, where a net salary has been agreed the employer will be covering the employee’s pension contribution in addition to their own.
