Take Home Pay

Answered 2 years ago

Im curious to know how our take home pay compares to other families out there.

I don't know what's average or considered good.

What's is your wage
What's your partner's wage.

Do you feel like it's adequate?

I'm on 1200 a week
Partner on 1150 a week.
We have a 4 and 6 year old.

Responses welcomed as I'm genuinely interested.

Thanks

We own a business run as a trust. So basically we spend whatever we want and just call it our wages. Find a good accountant and they’re worth their weight in gold :)
