calculate tax and take-home pay of 16 major countries - see what you earn against what you can buy and compare - just enter your gross income!
This calculator allows you to calculate income taxes and social contributions equivalent for the chosen countries and allow comparison between both. You can choose the preferred currency for the input amounts and displayed calculation. For example: If you choose GBP as your preferred currency, then the income entered will be converted to the chosen countries' native currencies for the calculation so that correct income equivalent is used. The results will then be shown in the native currencies and GBP.
We have trawled through the quagmire of tax legislation for 16 of the World's major economies and created a comparable position as close to the UK's PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system for employed people.
We look at each country's taxation for employed people, as well as things like medical care which are part of social contributions for some countries or require mandatory purchase of health insurance.
Combining this information lets us calculate taxes for each of the 16 countries and then do not only a taxation comparison but also a comparison of buying power based upon commonly purchased items.
