    just on your bonus, or overall?:blush: still that's harsh either way...

    name an organof the body the number of which you have your monthly net began with.
    (PLEASE don't say "limb", or worse still, "finger")

    LOL it wasnt even monthlly..it was a weeks wages plus bonus.:blush:
    I thought i had been ripped off, but when i enquired with the tax peeps, i had actually underpaid tax this time last year...lulling me into a false sense of what to expect this year. Gutted all the same. :biggrin:

    Yeah, it's depressing. I was trying to give one of my staff a bonus yesterday but when I calculated the extra tax and NI that she (and me for the extra employers NI) it was coming out at a 60% deduction.

    I just gave her cash from my pocket.
