    I just got my contract for a possible new job and was a little unsure about the wording. Does this mean I get **** after tax or I get **** and the tax gets deducted?

    Your Salary will be at the gross rate of £**** Pounds per week, payable to you net of all
    applicable tax deductions, monthly in arrears.

    I'm fairly sure that means you will get £**** before tax, so you will get less than £**** each week.

    This is your gross hourly rate but will be paid to you net, so you will actually see less cash than this obviously because you are being taxed.

    Thats how all jobs are advertised or offered, as your personal tax terms can be different to the next person.
