Salary Guide
We have put together a simple table that displays the Net salary amounts after tax has been already deducted to make your research slightly easier and less time consuming.

This guide only takes basic salary figures into account. Most employers will offer some additional benefits on top of your basic salary such as Health cover, Pension contributions, Bonuses and etc. Your assigned recruitment agent will inform you of these additional benefits when exploring an opportunity.

The different between Gross salary and Net salary is the combined Tax amount that is paid on your behalf by your employer to the Revenue commissioner (government). This tax figure is made up of Income tax, PRSI payments and the Universal Social charge.

The Net salary figures under the section Married are based on an employee who is married, however their partner is not working and there is only one income coming into the household.

The table above is just a simple guide with the purpose of giving a quick overview of what someone can expect to earn if they are on a certain salary in Ireland. It is difficult to cover every possible scenario so further investigation is recommended if you want to understand the Tax system in more detail
