Salaries

The main component of our pay is the basic salary; the amount varies depending on staff category, grade, step and multiplication factor.

Remuneration is subject to Community tax and other deductions laid down in the Staff Regulations. It is exempt from any national income taxation and staff are members of the European Commission’s social security and pension schemes.

To find out the basic salary, check the scales below for temporary and contract staff. It will, where appropriate, be increased by the allowances set out in the relevant Staff Regulations or Conditions of Employment. Our pay is also weighted by applying a correction coefficient based on the cost of living in Netherlands that is adjusted every year.
