Salaries in Dutch universities are set at national level and are included in the collective agreement for Dutch universities (CAO-NU). An academic`s place on the salary scale (found on page 80 of the UN OAC) is determined by their position, qualification and experience. The salaries shown in this article are before taxes. Dutch salaries are supplemented by a holiday allowance of 8% (paid in May or June) and an end-of-year allowance of 8.3% (paid in December). Income tax is high – either 36.5% or 52% – but foreign academics are often entitled to the 30% program that allows them to receive the first 30% of their salary tax-free. This is why personal development, sustainable employability and mobility of staff at Dutch universities are of the utmost importance.
