The minimum and average salary in the Czech Republic

There are several ways of calculating with an employee, which will also determine the level of income. Everything is standard and you just came across this:

  • Accord system - fixed payment for fulfillment of certain conditions (for example, work out a month);
  • chord-bonus - there is an opportunity to receive an additional amount of money depending on the terms of the transaction;
  • piecework payment - payment for the performance of specific work in the long term.

Also consider the concepts of "net" and "gross":

gross is a full income before taxes and in Czech it sounds like “Hrubá mzda”;
net - the income that you receive after deducting taxes in Czech sounds like “Čistá mzda”;
There is another option for deductions, which in the Czech Republic is called, like: “superhrubá mzda” and it differs in that the additional taxes and deductions from the employer come from net salaries.
And, as it is not difficult to guess, foreign workers can only rely on the last two payment options.
