Hi to everyone
I hade a job offer in Brno with 18000 czk salary net plus 2000 in meal voucher.
I must also to support my family with 5000 czk montly,
Could you help me to understand if it is possible or not?
#John on Sep 12, 2017 :
If we are a family of two, what net salary I should expect during interview to be sure that we would be able to have a decent standard of life?
#Abdou on Sep 07, 2017 :
Please with a net salary of 40k could be enough for a family of three members? and what is the price of renting an apartment with two rooms ?
thank you.
#koudy on Jul 16, 2017 :
36k after taxing is a good salary there. Everything above 30k is ok. People in Brno can spend 3-9k for food, it really depends. Stats above are quite correct.
#Anonymous on Jul 03, 2017 :
@Zola & Elaro
if you got offered 36K gross, that is cca 28000 after taxes.
Rent for a 3+1 or 3+kk alone would cost you 16-20k depending on location.
So that leaves you with cca 10k for life, and no its not nearly enough for a 4 member family to have anything resembling a decent life.
#Zola on Mar 16, 2017 :
Same situation as #Elaro : net offer about 36K, 2 kids one of them at school.

Would be this ok for an expat please?
#Elaro on Mar 06, 2017 :
Hello I've received net offer about 36 000. I have 2 kids and my one of them is a schoolboy. Do you think it's enough to manage my family there considering by renting 3+1 or 3+kk apartment?
#Anonymous on Feb 04, 2017 :
@Joseph No. If you are single, i think 40k gross is the bottom limit, more if you have a family (Im assuming ofc you will rent, if you dont pay for the apartment its a different story).
Ofc you can technically survive with 25k, but i wouldnt call that living.
#Joseph on Feb 02, 2017 :
Hi all, I was offered 25.000 czk gross in Brno.
Any comments? Is possible to live healthy in Brno with this amount of money?
#Anonymous on Jul 23, 2016 :
#Sotiris Markitanis The high bills on heating is due to winter months. Usually the price for heating is calculated as the average for the entire year, but in winter, you pay more more money, in summer 0.
#Sotiris Markitanis on May 20, 2016 :
My son is studying at Brno.He is paying monthly utilities (included in the rent) 1700kc which is 200kc for water, 1200kc for heating, 100kc for cleaning garbage collection, 100kc electricity of the common building areas and 100kc various expenses. Also he is paying extra the apartment electricity bills.

I am wondering whether the numbers given above are realistic, because for thee months stay (October, November & December) they need him to pay extra 532kc for water 7261kc for heating, 128kc for garbage collection and 127kc for electricity of the common building areas.

It sounds to me that the consumption are underestimated that correspond to the amounts given above above
#john on Aug 30, 2015 :
perphaps the rent needs to be updated ? looking online at rental agencies , the price provided for a 1 bedroom here is more like a studio apartment price.
#Lubos on Jul 13, 2014 :
I believe that your estimates are pretty accurate. Well done and keep up the good job!
