Understanding Your Gross Salary in Sweden: A Detailed Walkthrough

Your Gross Salary: The Starting Point for Your Net Salary

Your gross salary as you specified to 38 625 SEK, is the first step in the salary calculation. It is the amount on your pay slip before any deductions are made, which forms the basis for the calculation of the amount that ultimately reaches your bank account (the net salary).

Basic Deduction: Reducing Your Taxable Income

The basic deduction in your case calculated to 1 400 SEK; is a tax deduction that reduces the part of your income that is taxable. This deduction varies depending on income and other factors, and its purpose is to provide each individual with a tax relief space for part of the income.

Taxable Income: What the Tax is Calculated On

After your basic deduction is applied, the remaining sum becomes your taxable income, in your case calculated to 37 225 SEK. It is this amount that your municipal and state taxes and any church fees are based on.

Municipal Tax: Impact of Your Residence

Where you live plays an important role as the municipal tax varies depending on the municipality. In Stockholm the tax is 17.98%(6 693 SEK) of your taxable income. This tax funds local services such as schools, healthcare, and infrastructure.

County Tax: Your Contribution to Regional Welfare

The county tax is a tax that goes to your region or county and is used to fund regional services such as hospitals and public transport. Like the municipal tax, this is a significant part of your total tax rate and reflects the value of the services you have access to. Where you live in Stockholm the county tax is 12.38% which becomes 4 608 SEK.

Church Fee for Members of the Swedish Church

As a member of the Swedish Church, you pay a church fee, which varies between different parishes. This fee is also part of the taxable income and is included in the calculation of your net salary. Since you have not indicated that you are a member of the Swedish Church, you only pay the funeral fee which in your case is 67 SEK.
