Take-home pay rises for some Dutch workers

saving two euros in a piggy bankMost working Dutch people will see their take-home pay rise this year, according to figures published on Tuesday by online pay slip manager ADP.

In particular, people with a monthly income of between €2,000 and €6,500 will keep more of their money. For instance, the average monthly income of €2,662 will rise by around €12.

Incomes one and a half times higher than the average will rise by €45, and those twice as high by just over €60.

However, the ADP warns that over the whole tax year the increases will be lower because various tax breaks are being phased out. For instance, people on an average wage will see their holiday money drop by around €59.

ADP issues pay slips to 1.4 million Dutch workers each month.
