For everyone's comparison, I currently make 40k gross, which works out to 32k after taxes. For that I can afford a decent flat (studio, but a large one in a recently renovated building, 15.7k including utilities), the occasional restaurant/night out, and even a bit of travel if I'm careful, though after that I don't have much to put into savings.

That being said inflation is pretty high now, and if I were to continue making this salary I'd probably have to start making some sacrifices. So for February 2023, I'd say you can live alright with a roommate from 30k (gross), live alright by yourself from 40k, and live well for 50k+.

Thank you man.

I wanted to specify my net salary. I mean after taxes I will see 42k monthly salary. I think that's not bad for two person. If I find rental apertment for 15k. Rents are so expensive btw.

Thanks again

But remember its for one persone. Even clear 30k is ok.Rent for one is around 15k. So you have half for rest. Food is around 8k on average.(no restaurant).You can even safe some little money.With 40k youre good. For two you can multiply. 60k is ok. 80k is good.

Hi to everyone,

I would like to ask you if a salary around 40.000 CZK (already discounted for tax and health & social system), would be enough for me and my wife?

We do not worry about living in a 1 bedroom flat.

Moc děkuji
Roman on Sep 10, 2021:
yes, it's enough to support whole family, so if you're alone, for sure you can make savings from this sallary

Hello everyone,
I got a job offer from a good company in Brno. The gross salary is 51000 monthly. Is that enough to cover all the living costs (rent, food, transportation...)??
Can I still make some savings from that?

@Bark, 65k CZK gross is about 46k net, which seems to little to support yourself, wife (if she doesn't work) and three kids. You will need to rent 3+1 (at leas) and you can expect up to 25k monthly just for rent and utilities. So you are left with 20k to feed 5 people, transportation, services, etc. for all of them. I mean you can probably manage, but you will save nothing, you will not get any rich and I am not sure it is worth it. Impossible if you wanted private kindergarten or school for kids.

You may see that locals have usually much lower wages and are fine. But please remember, most of them own their houses and apartments without any mortgage, and if they don't, they usually do not have 3 children and not working partner.

What would be the reasonable income for a family of five (2 adults and 3 kids). Would 65k gross be okay?
igor slávek on Nov 16, 2019:
@salvatore saia. 40k gross mean 29630 net. It is little bit above average for Brno, little bit below for technical experts. I guyess ok for junior developer, expect raise to 60 within 2 years. Your main expenditure will definitelly be rent. Nice 1+1 for a single person varies between 9-14k including utilities. Room in a shared flat 4-8k. Overall I would say that you can live a decent live, but nothing too fancy. Though you can get a good lager for 30-40 czk:)
