Net to Gross Salary Calculator

At Stafftax we strongly advocate discussing and agreeing salaries in gross terms.

Use the calculator to work out an approximate gross wage from what your employee wants to 'take home'. Enter the net wage per week or per month and you will see the gross wage per week, per month and per annum appear.

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

The calculations explained
  • These calculations are based on the tax year 2020-2021 (ending 5 April 2021)
  • These calculations assume sole employment and are based on a standard tax code being used
  • These calculations are rounded to the nearest pound and intended for guideline use only
  • For a full list of the 2020-2021 tax rates and thresholds please click here

The total cost includes Employers National Insurance, current minimum Pension Contributions, Employee's Gross Pay. This figure allows families to budget correctly for their employee.

Stafftax assumes no responsibility for how these calculations are used thereafter.
