Salary conditions

Once your employment starts, personal income tax and social and health insurance contributions will be deducted from gross income before net income will be transferred to your bank account. The rates are as follows:

  • Personal income tax is 15%, calculated from Gross income
  • Social insurance is 6,5%, calculated from Gross income
  • Health insurance is 4,5%, calculated from Gross income

Besides deductions mentioned above, net income calculation needs to reflect individual situation of each employee within the respective month of employment (e.g. there are several types of personal income tax discount that might be applicable, number of days of holiday taken in the respective month influences net income, etc.). Details should be provided by the payroll department of your employer.
