Default Monthly take home Salary Calculator

Hi there,

I'm trying to work out if a $110,000 a year IT job in Brisbane is good and enough to rent a $500-600 house in a nice area of Brisbane.

Is there a salary calculator out there the same as we have in the UK:

The Salary Calculator - Take-Home

For Australia?

If I get $110,000 gross a year which includes super at 9% what is my net monthly income?

Any pointers appreicated.


Regards,

Alistair.

Hi,

I've sort of tried to calculate it using the Australian gov tax calculators

Tax Tools - Simple Tax Calculator


For taxable year 2008

It looks like

$110,000 - $31,100 is taxable

+ Medicare levy of $110,000 X 0.015 = $1,650


So $110,000 - 31,100 = 78,900

78,900 - 1650 = 77,250


77,250 / 12 = $6437.50

So roughly it could be $6437.50 , but this doesn't include taking the super off as well.

Is this roughly right??

your actual gross income will be $101k ... less $29k tax (inc medicare) = $72k net or $6k/month.

this is very good wage for brisbane.

Many thanks, so would it be enough for coping with paying $500 a week renting in Hamilton or Paddington?

no problems mate, you'll probably find you actually get paid fortnightly... so you'll roughly have $2750 less $1000 for rent leaves you with plenty of spending money

$500/wk in Hamilton/Paddington will probably only get you a two bedder unit. You may need to increase your spend if you want a townhouse/post war home etc. Both areas are close to the CBD and have great public transport.

Have a look at the tax calculator that the Australian Tax office put out for the best assessment of your take home for the next financial year. Australian Taxation Office Homepage.

If you can get your employer to salary sacrifice by including a vehicle, laptop etc, you can save a bit more on tax

I understand LAFHA (living away from home allowance) comes in handy...but i also understand that this is something your employer can "sort" for you.
Anyone know how i can account for this, using these calculators??

I believe your employer calculates LAFHA for you, but I think it works like this:

Salary
Less 9% superannuation
Less rental payments (which are supposed to be 'reasonable' to your position, i.e. if you have a family or a senior position, you would be expected to pay more rent that if you were single and in a junior position)
Less food allowance (which is set by the tax authorities - I think about $9,700 a year? it's on the ATO website)

= Taxable income

You can plug the taxable income figure into the calculator on the ATO website and it will spit out your tax figure. Don't forget to take off Medicare at 1.5% of your taxable income.

To get your take home pay, it will be:

Salary less superannuation less medicare less tax (and I'm not sure whether the company pays the rental directly, or whether you pay the rental).

If you're on a 457 visa, there may be other things to think about - such as medical insurance, which I think is compulsory (it was for me, and my company does not pay it).
