I would ask to see a breakdown. There can be a whole long list of bits of your salary withheld for a variety of reasons. If you want to know what you'll be taking home, you need to know the 'kathara' earnings, not the 'meikta' which is what you've been told. I would ask for an 'analytiki misthodosia' to see where your salary will be going. You'll have income tax withholding, insurance, pension, and potentially other withholding as well (solidarity tax, etc). Before you can rent/buy a place to live you'll need to know your 'kathara' earnings. Any employer will understand that.1) The salary I have been offered is in gross (before tax + stoppages). After speaking with a few Greek friends who say Greek salaries are typically quoted in net (after tax and stopages). Does anyone have any experience with this?
It depends on the employer and type of job so I can't answer that, but some of them are what I mentioned just before.2) Apart from income taxes what else comes off a salary in Greece? For instance in the UK we have national insurance and income tax.
