The higher the salary a Czech employee earns, the lower the percentage of their salary that they contribute to social security*. Compared to other countries, the percentage of the minimal and average salaries the employee retains is one of the lowest in net terms. However, in comparing the net salary to the gross salary of EUR 100,000 a year (approximately CZK 217,000 a month), the Czech Republic rises in the ranking, having the ninth highest net salary in Europe. These are the results of the Social Security Survey (PDF) conducted by Deloitte, in which 30 European countries participated**. Furthermore, the survey showed that the Czech Republic has one of the lowest minimal and average gross salaries. In European terms, an increase in the minimal salary is visible.
