What is income tax?

Individuals in the UK who are in employment must pay a certain amount of tax to the Government.

If you are in work, income tax is taken from your payslip in the form of:

  • Income tax
  • National Insurance contributions (NIC)

If you are Self Employed you will need to complete a Self Assessment tax return, and a Corporate tax return.

How much do I have to earn before I pay tax?

The personal allowance set by the HMRC is the minimum amount you can earn before you pay tax.

You don’t pay tax on anything up to this figure.



Income Limit




If your income is above £100,000, your personal allowance is reduced by £1 for every £2 above the £100,000 limit.
