Thinking of employing someone in Finland? As with every other country, certain costs are associated with employing a worker that come on top of the gross salary that you are offering. For Finland, those taxes include health insurance, pension insurance, accident insurance and unemployment insurance.
In Finland, employees pay several taxes, which are deducted from their gross salary by their employers. The income tax is progressive and determined by the salary and location. On top of that Finnish residents pay municipal and church taxes and contribute to pension insurance and unemployment insurance. They also pay public broadcasting tax.
