How salary is calculated is something both employees and employers must be familar with. First of all we would like to explain, what is net salary and what is basic gross salary? Furthermore, we would like to let you know how much contributions you need to pay by employers and employees? And last but not least, what is final cost for employer?
What do you include in net salary?
In accordance with the slovenian Employment Act (ZDR-1), salaries consist of basic salary, part of salary for work performance and supplements. Hence, if you are planning to move to Slovenia, you would find more about income taxation in article about non-resident taxpayer.
The employer can not arbitrarily lower salary of worker
Employer and employee determine the amount of salary amount for a worker in employment contract. Both parties should sign the contract (employer and worker). Of course, when determining the amount, you should take into account the statutory minimum or minimum salary. This in 2018 amounts to EUR 638 net, or exactly EUR 842.79 gross.
What is the difference between minimum, basic and base salary?
Basic gross salary is basic salary defined with employment contract.
Net salary is amount that worker receives to their bank account without taking into account work-related reimbursement of costs (meal, transport). You get the amount of net salary, if you deduct social contributions from gross salary defined with employment contract (22.10%). An employee should pay this part of social contributions and advance payment of personal of personal income tax.
Gross gross salary represents total cost for employer. It includes basic gross salary with all supplements and social contributions of the employer (16,10%) and the reimbursement of work related expenses (transport, meals, allowances, etc.).
