Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Time for the wet towel every two quid over. round the head and the backs of lots of used envelopes! Once your income goes over 100K you loose your personal Allowance (PA) at the rate of a pound for every two quid over. At the sort of level you are considering you will have no PA , but on the other hand you have to be earning to be taxed!

I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.

The PA would be completely lost at an income level of 123.7K.
