Probably a ridiculous question, we know. After all, who wouldn’t like to earn a little more? What if we told you that it was possible to top-up your pay by as much as £5,000 without even increasing your workload?
Check out our handy 10 point checklist and see what you can do to add to your take home pay as a developer next month:
If it was a few years ago, then you may be able to go to your employer and simply make a case that it’s time you’re due a little something extra.
You can do this easily by looking through advertisements for open positions at your own or competitor employers. If you feel you’re getting a raw deal, ask your boss (politely!) for a raise.
If so, is there funding available to pay for it? Most employers will at least help to pay for further training and qualifications if you can demonstrate that they are relevant. And they’ll help you negotiate that pay rise when you’ve got them.
Or do you take on additional responsibilities for which your employer may be willing to offer you a small bonus in your pay packet?
They soon add up and, to coin a phrase, every little really does help. A few other quick ways in which you can boost your disposable income:
If you drive, can you save by switching to public transport?
Check out long-term rail and bus season tickets which can save you thousands every year.
Not only can you make huge savings on your travel costs but you’ll save on your gym subscription too.
If not, check with HMRC to see if you’re entitled to do so, especially if you have children. These credits can be worth thousands.
These raise your take-home pay by reducing your tax bill.
