Factsheet personnel in Germany: Insight into your employer's costs and obligations

In this factsheet, you will find an overview of the employee benefits package that is customary in Germany and the costs associated with it, calculated on an annual basis.

By means of the costs overview you will gain an insight into the terms and conditions of employment that are customary in Germany, based on which you can decide whether an employee in Germany fits the budget. As soon as this decision has been made, we will be happy to help you make a suitable offer for your employee, so you will be well prepared for entering into negotiations with your employee.

In view of the complexity and, possibly, your insufficient knowledge of German legislation, we recommend that you do not limit yourself to looking at the financial side! In the appendix you will find a detailed explanation of the sections that make up the cost overview. We also give an overall picture of employment law, social security, taxes, employee benefits, and health & well-being in Germany.
