What is 'net' pay?
Your net pay, also known as your take-home pay, is the part of your gross wage that’s left after taxes and other deductions have been taken out. It’s what you get in your bank account or paycheck on pay day. If you know your wage, you can use our pay calculator to estimate how much you will take home each pay cycle.
What about my tax deductions and offsets?
The benefits of most common tax deductions, such as work and business expenses, is that they only appear after you put in your tax return – not during your pay cycle. An exception to this is when you salary sacrifice into your super, as this is taxed at a lower rate and triggers a deduction off your tax when you get paid.
