In principle, the travel costs for the journey to work are covered by the transport deduction of € 463 , which is automatically taken into account in the calculation.
Benefits in kind are benefits in kind that the employer grants to the employee free of charge or at a reduced price.
This includes, for example
  • a company car for private use (with the exception of electric vehicles)
  • a company apartment free of charge,
  • free or reduced-price meals or
  • employee discounts.
Allowances (e.g. income-related expenses, special expenses or extraordinary expenses) reduce the assessment basis. In order to take these expenses into account in the monthly tax calculation, a tax allowance notice is required. This must be submitted to the employer.

The flat-rate allowance for income-related expenses of € 132 per year is already taken into account in the calculation for employees.
Special payments:
The vacation allowance (also known as vacation pay, vacation allowance or 13th salary) is assumed to be the amount of a gross monthly salary.

The Christmas bonus (also known as Christmas bonus or 14th salary) is assumed to be the amount of a gross monthly salary.
Enter the amount of additional taxable special payments for the entire year in the field - e.g. balance sheet bonus, bonus, anniversary bonus, premium, ...

With the sixth optimization (also known as the seventh model and "Formula 7") 6/7 of an annual bonus is paid out over 6 or more months as agreed and 1/7 is settled as a special payment. It should be noted that this tax optimization only applies to certain types of special payments and depends on the individual circumstances of the employee.

Our function divides 6/7 of the bonus over 12 months and 1/7 over the 13th or 14th payment. This means that no additional special payment is shown in the result!

How to use the practical gross-net calculator for Austria 2023:
Enter your income in the top line. You can specify this either as a monthly or annual amount. Indicate whether this amount is gross or net. At the end you will see a net income when entering gross. If you change the specification to net, the calculator carries out a reverse calculation process (net gross calculator). No further information is required for a simple calculation of your gross or net income, provided you are in the "Employee" contribution group. Otherwise select "worker", "pensioner" (ASVG/civil servants) or "apprentice".

You want a more precise result?
For an accurate result, you can tailor the calculator to your personal situation with additional information.

The gross-net calculator also includes your family circumstances in the calculation. In the second line of additional information, indicate whether the single-earner or single-parent tax credit is to be applied. For the family bonus+, simply enter the number of children for whom you receive family allowance (for children up to 17 or from 18 years of age).

In the case of "commuter allowance", the tax deduction on travel expenses is determined. The small commuter flat rate here means a distance of 20 kilometers or more, which can be easily covered by public transport. The large commuter flat rate applies from a distance of 2 kilometers or more, which has no or insufficient public transport connections. Enter the exact number of your commuter kilometers below. If the costs of an Öffi ticket (weekly, monthly or annual ticket for public transport) are covered in whole or in part by the employer, please state this.

Normal working hours must be entered to calculate the hourly wage (normal hour or hour of attendance).

The field "benefits in kind" requires information on benefits in kind that you as an employee receive from the employer. It is best to ask your employer which of your benefits in kind are subject to income tax. Under "Exemption amount", enter which part of your income is tax-free.

With the special payments, you can choose whether the holiday bonus or the Christmas bonus should be calculated. In addition, under "Other" (special payments), you can specify a further reference, e.g. 15th salary, balance sheet allowance, bonus, anniversary bonus, bonus, .... This remuneration is taxed taking into account the sixth of the year.

Finally, the gross-net calculator needs information about the federal state and the tax year. The result, with all the details on income tax, social security and special payments, also provides you with information on employer costs. If you would like the employer costs to be calculated, tick the "Display non-wage labor costs" box.

Then click on "Calculate" at the end of the form to start the calculation process and display your personal net or gross income.
