Contract work

Post by LAS_VEGAS » Mon Jul 03, 2017 3:57 pm

I'm offered a contract job in the IT industry for 1-3 years. Monthly salary offered is 9000 euros.

This sounds insanely good, I'm wondering if there are any other costs than the income tax? How much I would get after all the fees and the taxes?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Depends completely on what the company making the offer was talking about, a monthly gross salary as their employee, a monthly fee to a company or something else. If indeed a monthly gross salary as an employee, that is way above what one would normally get. For a salary taxed in Finland, you can use a calculator in ... ieli=en-US

Since you mentioned a "contract", I'm thinking that possibly it is what they would pay you as a (one man) company, you then being responsible for any employer etc. fees. In this case, it would equal to roughly 6500€/month payable gross salary to yourself, from which you'd pay tax as any employee. I'm not going into details about dividends or other aspects of running a business.
