Hi 
Looking at my universal credit statement where its says my husbands income it shows. Net earnings ££ after tax etc then earnings reported by employer ££ before tax, then it says amount calculated for claim is the before tax amount?
On my bit it just shows earnings reported by employer and is the amount I get after tax etc. 
Does this sound right surley the amount for my husbands should be bades on net not gross.
Thankyou for any feedback

    Hello @jamjars and welcome to the community :) 

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.


    I have moved your discussion over to our Universal Credit category and altered the title a bit. I have also tagged it as unanswered :)

    Your husband's should be after tax too. They are meant to ignore tax and national insurance and pension but if he has other deductions like student loans or child maintenance they don't ignore that. 
    Has he looked at his tax account to see what his employer reported as that's where they get the information from hmrc
