- Wondering how much difference that pay rise or new job would make? Our PAYE calculator shows you in seconds.
- To use the PAYE calculator, enter your annual salary (or the one you would like) in the Insert Income box below.
- The table below will automatically display your gross pay, taxable amount, PAYE tax, ACC, KiwiSaver and student loan repayments on annual, monthly, weekly and daily basis.
Disclaimer: This is only a guide using standard assumptions to estimate your tax breakdown. There are many other possible variables - for a definitive understanding, contact the IRD. This calculator assumes you're employed, as being self-employed means hourly, weekly, fortnightly and monthly income payments will be different, depending on when you make tax payments and how much you pay.
