Redesign of The Salary Calculator

The Salary Calculator has been around since 2005 and although many new options have been added since then, the site has never had a complete redesign – until now. Working with designer Dan Gallagher-Cowley, the site has been given a refresh and a much more modern look.

All the same options are there for you to personalise your tax calculations, but laid out in a way which we hope will be easier to use and less daunting for visitors who are unfamiliar with all the terminology. One big change is that you enter all of your details first, and then see the results on the next page (instead of the results being side-by-side with the options) – once you get the results, you can scroll down to modify the options and re-calculate if you wish. I know a lot of people liked the side-by-side layout, but unfortunately I was running out of space for options and this new design gives much more space to add new features. For example, it has now been possible to add auto-enrolment pensions.

The new design also works on mobile devices, so I have removed the dedicated mobile version of the site (which only had a couple of pages, and was missing some options) – mobile users can now use every page of the site and will get new features as soon as they are available on the main site.

I’m going to keep experimenting with the design and continue to make changes to try to optimise the experience of users on the site. I know there will be some who preferred the old version of the site but I hope most of you will find the new site easier to use! Try out the new-look Salary Calculator.
