Contributions calculator

The calculator can:

  • calculate the amount of primary (employee) contribution that you may deduct from an employee’s gross earnings
  • calculate your secondary (employer) contribution, including any additional payment for employees whose gross earnings are between the monthly Standard Earnings Limit and the monthly Upper Earnings Limit
  • recognise when earnings fall below the minimum earnings threshold

Monthly paid employees

Enter the gross monthly earnings figure, but do not include pence. For example you would enter £2100.89 as £2100.

Weekly paid employees

Enter the gross weekly earnings figure (including pence). The calculator is set up to always round down to the nearest 25 pence (for example, £567.49 will round to £567.25). 

As the weeks progress, you must enter the weekly earnings into each week so that the calculator can take into account the accumulative totals for that month.

Please note, in the final week’s payment in any one month, you must round down so that the monthly accumulative total does not include pence. The total of all the weekly earnings paid in any one month, rounded down to the nearest whole pound, must be entered on the combined employer return.


The results cannot be used to override or dispute any officially issued notice. They are for guidance purposes only.
