Tax and National Insurance
The tax system in the UK and where to find advice
The percentage of your income that you pay in tax will vary according to your income, including any allowances which may count as taxable benefits. For academic staff with joint appointments, income is counted as your combined University and College salary. The tax rates are set by the government and it is advisable to check your tax code and rate whenever you start a new role or receive a pay rise or salary increment, particularly if this might take you over the threshold into the higher or additional tax rate.
For international employees, your move to the UK may have implications for your tax status in your home country. Please consult your Departmental Administrator or the Payroll team for advice.
