- laufender Solidaritätszuschlag *current sum of supplementary tax (to finance the reunification)

- Rentenversicherung-Arbeitnehmeranteil, laufendes Entgelt *pension dues, employee's share, current sum

- Arbeitslosenversicherung-Arbeitnehmeranteil, laufendes Entgelt *unemployment dues, employee's share, current sum

- Arbeitgeberzuschuss Krankenversicherung *employer's grant towards health insurance

- Arbeitgeberzuschuss Pflegeversicherung *employer's grant towards nursing care insurance

- Abgeführter Beitrag freiwillige Krankenversicherung *deducted and forwarded dues for voluntary health insurance

- Abgeführter Beitrag freiwillige Pflegeversicherung *deducted and forwarded dues for voluntary nursing care insurance

- Steuerfreie Bezüge *non-taxable income

- Steuerfrei [gemäss] DBA (Doppelbesteuerungsabkommen) *non-taxable income according to Double Taxation Agreement

- Steuerfrei [gemäss] ATE (Auslandstätigkeitserlass) *non-taxable income according to Edict on Employment Abroad

 

That should give you an idea, I don't guarantee for precise translation of the termini technici.

 

Rentenversicherung, Krankenversicherung, Arbeitslosenversicherung and Pflegeversicherung are mandatory, half of the dues being paid by employer and employee each; however, you may be exempt if your monthly salary is above a certain amount or you can choose voluntary health and/or nursing care insurance. The employer can pay a certain amount as a grant towards voluntary Krankenversicherung and Pflegeversicherung. As a foreigner working abroad you may be subject to double taxation or fall under the above Edict (if your home country does not have a Double Taxation Agreement with Germany) - depending on how much you earn.

 

If anyone who knows more about the system than I do finds any major mistakes in the above explanation, fell free to correct them.

Gesamt-Brutto --> total income before taxes and social security

Steuer-Brutto --> total income before taxes and social security that is relevant for tax-calculation

Lohnsteuer --> income tax

Kirchensteuer --> church tax (8% of the tax amount)

SolZ --> Solidaritätszuschlag --> additional tax to support east Germany (10% of tax amount)

Steuerfreie Bezuge --> tax free income

SV-Brutto --> Sozialversicherungs Brutto --> total income relevant for the calculation of social security amount

RV-Beitrag --> Rentenversicherungsbeitrag --> pension payments --> 19,9% of SV-Brutto split in half between employer and employee

KV-Beitrag --> Krankenversicherungsbeitrag --> health insurance costs --> depending on your insurance --> if publically insured around 13,8% of SV-Brutto split in half between employer and employee

PV-Beitrag --> Pflegeversicherungsbeitrag --> nursing care insurance --> 2,5% of SV-Brutto split in half between employer and employee

KV-Beitrag --> see above probably for employer

PV-Beitrag --> see above probably for employer

mmmm, bit more difficult and actually rather complicated...

 

1 : direktversicherung

2 : 50% zuschuss private krankenversicherung netto

3 : betrag Altersvorsorge Arbeitgeber laufend steuer-frei

4 : betrag Altersvorsorge Arbeitgeber laufend steuer-pauschal

5 : betrag Altersvorsorge Arbeitnehmer laufend sozialversicherungspflichtig

6 : betrag Altersvorsorge Arbeitnehmer laufend gehalt verrechnet

7 : unterstützungskasse

8 : abzug direktversicherung steuerpflichtig

9 : arbeitgeber-anteil private/freie pflegeversicherung

10: übernahme pauschale steuer direktversicherung

 

translation:

1 : life insurance

2 : 50% employer subsidy to private health insurance

3-6: private pension plan and pretty complicated... 3 is non-taxed employer contribution, 4 is taxed employer contribution, 5 and 6 is a "Entgeltumwandlung" iirc

7 : company pension insurance company

8 : employee contribution to life insurance (1)

9 : employer contribution to private care insurance

10: ??? - presumably: employer flat tax for life insurance (1)

Hi all, great post!

I have 1 question though, in my payslip, I have the Gesamt-Brutto which is my actual brutto salary, but under that there is Verdienstbescheinigung field, which is more than my actual salary and all types of the deductions applied to my salary are here also, a bit higher though.

Is this the total amount my employer spends on me, including his part of the deductions (for health, social...)?

Thx

Nachverrechnung aus Vorm. = Corrections from last month

 

Corrections from last month. This hits my paycheque about every 2nd or 3rd month and always the same amoutn. Any idea why they'd need to make corrections? I can see this happening at the end of the year but not every 2 months

 

thanks

Is this related to travel expense claims incl. daily allowances? I also have these corrections, usually small amounts (< €10). It has to do with taxable and non-taxable parts. Last year, I got a payroll slip with 8 pages incl. corrections for different months.

€24,- is the daily allowance for one day in Germany, so €48,- for 2 days. Therefore, I assume the correction has to do with daily allowances. You can also contact the salary department and just ask.
