👆 Above in the left box with the green border you can find our formal proposal.
Given that the Belgian salary taxation system isn't the most transparent 😅 we also provide you with a best-effort simulation to give you an idea what this proposal means for you at the end of the month. Please also see this as nothing more than a best-effort estimation, for a more formal simulator please use something like this or this.
If you have any questions at any point don't hesitate to reach out to the person that send you this proposal via mail or chat.
Monthly cash estimation
Monthly net allowance
You will receive a monthly net allowance. This allowance value isn't taxed and will be paid out in net on your bank account. The components of this allowance are build up according to formal regulations set forth by Belgium's social security.
If there is a IP rights percentage mentioned in your proposal, then your role is entitled to get a part of your gross salary paid out in IP right fees. This part of your gross salary is taxed in a very beneficial way. While this changes nothing for you day-to-day it allows you to decrease your total tax burden.
At Dataroots you have the options to opt-in for a company car or for a mobility budget. The mobility budget is a monthly budget constructed in such a way that you can use it without any taxation for sustainable mobility options (e.g. train or bus tickets, a bike purchase..) or to pay your rent or loan. If you want to convert it into cash there is approx. a 30% tax deduction.
You will receive a Monizze card that will be loaded every month with the value defined in the green box multiplied by your actual days worked for the given month. You can use this card to buy food at (almost) every supermarket in Belgium. The estimation is based on 20 working days. For a meal voucher value of e.g. 7EUR as an employee you are legally obliged to contribute 1.09EUR from your nett salary. This means that for this example the nett value of the meal voucher is 5.91EUR.
