What Is the Average Salary in Luxembourg?

The average gross salary in Luxembourg is €5,411 per month, or €64,932 per year, according to the latest data from the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (STATEC). If we run this through our salary calculator, we get an estimated after-tax salary of €3,762 per month.

This figure makes Luxembourg the EU member state with the highest average wage. However, it is important to note that the mean tends to be skewed by high earners, since it is calculated as the sum of all salaries divided by the number of individuals. Thus, the salary of the average worker in the Grand Duchy is likely lower.

What Is the Minimum Wage in Luxembourg?

The minimum wage in Luxembourg is €2,571 per month (€30,851 yearly) for unskilled workers, and €3,085 per month (€37,021 per year) for skilled workers.

The minimum wage, also called the minimum social salary, plays an important role in how Luxembourg taxes are calculated, since it determines the values of certain social contributions and tax credits.

How Is Salary Calculated and Paid in Luxembourg?

The salaries of employed taxpayers are generally taxed at source in Luxembourg. This means that income tax and social security contributions are deducted monthly from the gross salary directly by employers. The calculation of income tax depends on the individual's family status, therefore it is important to announce any change in your personal situation as soon possible.

If you are self-employed, then you need to file a tax return with the Luxembourg Inland Revenue, who may even require you to make quarterly advance payments on your income tax. You will also be required to pay both the employee's part and the employer's part of your social security contributions.
