Things to keep in mind
Your final costs may differ from the provided estimates for a few reasons. Some countries assess tax by income levels, some have caps on total tax, some change based on particular industries, and some rates vary based on location within a country.
Also, since currency exchange rates fluctuate, salary costs can shift from month to month if you pay in a different base currency.
Estimates generally don't include costs for vacation, sick pay, private health insurance, and other employer-provided benefits. Onboarding expenses are also not included.
