How to Calculate Zakat
The amount of zakat you owe in any given year will be based on your retained wealth for one exact lunar year. 2.5% of this wealth above the zakat nisab must then be given as your zakat contribution. This zakat percentage is universal and there are few to no exceptions to this number.
It is important to bear in mind that zakat tax UK is not only payable on gold, silver and cash; it is also payable on any business profits, investments, any money owed to you, shares, property income, and bonds. The zakat payable is based on the relevant sums at the time of paying the sums (at the end of the complete lunar year) as, understandably, maintained profit can vary over the course of the year.
