Hpc Salary Survey

Recommended Posts

OK, what counts as earning? Do you include reaping the rewards for things you've done in the past - e.g. royalties for books? What about investment income - another manifestation of rewards for previous work?

(see, you can't conduct a poll without someone rubbishing it). :D

I would like to point out that last years (household) earnings have had a big hit with the arrival of a 3rd toddler which necessitated an increase in the demands of the (now) sole breadwinner against previous years.

Question for the three people to date that earned over £500k last year.

Please can I have some, it would really come in handy.

If in UK I should like to thank them for keeping the politicians in the manner to which they have become accustomed.

given that a figure of £40,500 puts you in the top 10% of wage earners (though of course, wider wealth measurements would push that far higher), we are either very unrepresentative or liars...

I earn around that figure but only due to inheritance do I consider myself well off. Someone else earning that has a far more similar lifestyle to someone on 20k

As we have the thread that wealth not income is the driver of house prices perhaps we should have a net household worth thread.......I suspect wealth is often in inverse relationship to earned income.

I will be doubling my take home pay in the next 12 months, which will take me from the £30k - £45k bracket to the £45k - £60k bracket. The increase in income comes from additional self employed work I undertake outside of my daytime 9-5 job.

My income was much higher in the past whilst I was working 9-5 and running a small business in the evenings and weekend. I decided to cash in on that position and sold the business to increase my capital position - now I have a lower income, but a sizeable chunk of cash in the bank.

I point out to my OH everytime she mo ans about not having enough cash that we are in the top 1% of earners by global standards.

How about "Go and earn some more then" as an answer to that complaint? If she says that now imagine if she sprogs.

I earn what is by UK standards a lot of money, but a family and a demanding but not very productive wife eats it all up.

Nah - she isn't moaning at me - just a reflection of the high cost of living in Western Australia.

She would get a high score on the HPC suitable wife scale - hates waste, budgets, always turning lights off, and now its turned cold adopts a wear a jumper attitude

Sounds good, excellent even, perhaps I was misled by your other post saying she wanted a 4WD followed by the mention of complaints about not having enough cash.

Fortunately the SUV idea has gone away. The frugality of a Toyota Yaris (which is all we really need for 99.9% of our travel) seems to have won her heart for the time being :)

I am perhaps more nervous of whining materialistic tendencies appearing in women than others due to my current predicament, bear with me if I appear a little cynical and jump to conclusions. :rolleyes:

Me: last year on a Swiss salary, this year on a French one which is about a 1/3rd the Swiss salary with more tax to pay. Try that for a drop in income. I'm still reasonably well paid for France.

My London based number came to an end in Feb. Not done a days graft since.

If you exclude trying to keep a nasty, entitled, French burd happy. That, is graft.

So income for current tax year will be south of £10k. Whereas previous have been regular £30-40k years.

Good job i don't need to earn much.
