---> Oops! <---

The Java plugin has not yet been intalled for your web browser!

But don't panic, all you have to do is visit and download it.

It's easy and free! And it works with all browsers e.g. FireFox, Internet Exploder, Safari, Opera etc. It will also work with any desktop/laptop computer: Macintosh, Windoze PC, Linux - Ubuntu etc. If you're running Ubuntu then use this command: from console: sudo apt-get install icedtea6-plugin.


Once you have the Java plugin installed the PAYE tax calculator will be visible here instead of the "Oops" text :)
