I too would concur with the above. Very roughly the 1st 38K at 20%. the balance at 40%. I know there is a mid figure of 34% and the top rate is just below 40% (I think) but these calculations will also account for the ACC levy which could be about 4% (ish).

Hi on 85000k you will bring home just over 5000k per month
Have to say after a time you should keep looking as to what the market is paying like for like my husband looked at his last year went back to his manager and had a pay rise of 22%

tee hee... hum... that wasn't my intention and i'll really need to check out detail by doing my own trawling... however, i figured someone would know from experience roughly, and that would be a good starting point!! honest
