The National Minimum Wage Act 2000 provides that the minimum wage rate for an experienced adult employee from 1 July 2007 is €8.65 an hour before deductions - income levy / tax etc if applicable etc You can read the full text here - http://www.citizensinformation.ie/categ ... c_min_wage If you earn less than €352 gross per week (before tax is deducted), you will not pay any social insurance. This does not mean that you are not getting a contribution. You are still covered by Class A social insurance because your employer is paying social insurance on your behalf. http://www.citizensinformation.ie/categ ... ce-classes From 1 January 2010 - Income levy rates are as follows: If you are under 65 you can earn €15,028 or €289 per week without paying any levy otherwise 2% on income up to €75,036 http://www.citizensinformation.ie/categ ... ncome-levy Tax really depends on several things & what credits you are entitled too http://www.citizensinformation.ie/categ ... calculated http://www.citizensinformation.ie/categ ... nd-reliefs
