2019 General Election Calculator

A General Election is taking place in the UK on 12th December, and all the main parties have released their manifestos – most of which have some policies which would affect your take-home pay, if they were to be elected. It’s a small part of the puzzle, but to help you try to figure it out, the 2019 Election Calculator has been created – this attempts to show you what your take-home pay would look like if each party came to power.

Some parties have proposed only small changes, and others have much larger plans. The calculator has had to make some assumptions, as the parties don’t always provide all the detail – anything that isn’t specified in a manifesto has been left as it currently is.

It is also worth noting that the parties also have policies which affect other areas of tax (such as VAT, inheritance tax, capital gains tax etc), and other benefits such as free childcare, which means that your finances are likely to be affected by things not considered by this calculator. If you’d like to give it a go, please head over to the 2019 Election Calculator – and let me know if you think anything is missing!
