Plan 1 - Overseas thresholds

 

The repayment threshold for the UK for the period April 16 to March 17 is £17,495. So anyone with an annual salary of over £17,495 is required to repay their loan and they pay 9% of their earnings over this threshold.


If you are living overseas we work out your monthly repayment schedule using the same principles as for those who live in the UK. So, you will repay 9% of your earnings over the repayment threshold for the country you are living in.


To take account of differences in living costs, the repayment threshold in a foreign country will not necessarily be the same as in the UK. We will update thresholds each year to take account of price changes.


The repayment thresholds are set at an affordable level which reflects the conditions in the relevant country.


Overseas thresholds are calculated using information from externally published World Bank data. This data provides a measure of the differences in the general price levels of countries and therefore represents the relative cost of living between countries and enables fair thresholds to be set. Where the relevant economic information is not available to set a threshold the lowest threshold is used (£3,505 for the period April 16 to March 17).


For example, if you were living in Poland the repayment threshold is the equivalent of £7005 so your repayments would be calculated as 9% of anything you earn over the equivalent of £7005.


The applicable currency for each country and the exchange rate that SLC use when calculating an overseas repayment schedule is also listed in the below table.


These exchange rates are the average rates for the previous UK calendar year.


These overseas thresholds also apply to the period April 16 to March 17.


The following table shows the repayment thresholds that apply for different countries. It also shows a minimum monthly repayment amount - this is how much you would be liable to repay each month if you did not inform us of your actual income while overseas.
