UK National Insurance

This calculator takes in the yearly gross salary as input and calculates the Income Tax and National Insurance based on the rules provided. It then calculates the take-home pay by subtracting the calculated Income Tax and National Insurance from the gross salary.

If the inputted salary is less than or equal to the tax threshold of £12,570, no Income Tax or National Insurance contributions are required. Otherwise, Income Tax is calculated using a progressive tax system with three different tax rates: 20%, 40%, and 45%, depending on the taxable income. National Insurance contributions are also calculated using a progressive system based on the weekly earnings, with rates of 0%, 12%, and 2% for different income ranges.

The calculated Income Tax and National Insurance contributions are then subtracted from the gross salary to obtain the take-home pay. The results are displayed in the form of a message showing the gross salary, Income Tax, National Insurance, and take-home pay. If the inputted salary is not a valid positive number, an error message will be displayed asking the user to enter a valid input.
