The other flats are all for people who are receiving government assistance or government regulated flat which requires a special application. This estimator is probably taking into account those apartments which are advertised but not available to all members of the public
I wanted to know the salary breakup for a 50,000 salary in Vienna, Austria. We are a married couple and one of us will not start working right away as my partner is in the process of getting a job offer. This is the offer I have received. Please let me know if this will be enough for both of us. We are fine living in a one bedroom apartment too.
Salary: approx. 1900 net each month, 2200 net on the 13th and 14th payment (as they are taxed less)
Rent: you should be fine around 1000
Food: depends on you, but I'd say 200 per week including occasionally eating somethin out
Insurance: depends what insurance you are referring to, medical insurance is covered by the employer
TV-tax: 25 per month (if you own a TV)
Salary: 40k per year equals 2.9k gross and 1.9knet since you're paid 14x a year?
Rent for 1 bedroom appt.: 1000-1500 p/m
Utilities: 100-200 p/m
Internet: 15-35 p/m
Food: 750-1000 p/m
TOT: 950 - 1400 per person p/m
Transport: 365 p/y
Medical: free or set aside 100 p/m?
Insurance: covered by company?
Mobile: 20 p/m
TOT: 150 p/m (avg)
So total costs p/p would be 1100 - 1550 p/m?
Am I missing any costs in this list?
Monthly salary is usually paid 14 times a year in Austria. Moreover, the 13th and 14th salary are taxed very low, so your net salary is higher.
Thus, it's better to calculate with yearly figures. The gross/net calculator of the Ministry of Finance will help you: https://rechner.cpulohn.at/bmf.gv.at/familienbonusplus/#bruttoNetto_familienbonus (unfortunately only in German).
For your two children you will also receive monthly child benefit (for both currently a little more than 260€) plus other tax benefits. Apart from that, they are insured for free in your public health insurance.
So you will get along with your salary better than you think. However, everything I have written here does not apply if you work for an international organization (UN, EU, ...) and therefore their rules apply.
Nevertheless, the problem is the rent. 1300€ in the 19th district for 4 rooms seems ambitious to me. But the rent depends on the duration of the contract. Unlimited rents are expensive, the shorter the duration, the cheaper the rent must be.
All the best for your stay in Vienna, you will enjoy it!
We are a family with 2 children, aged 10 and 7 and we are thinking to relocate to Vienna. According to Numbeo, for a decent/medium life style we would need 2189 EUR, without rent, without vacation and 5% of the time eating out (very rarely - the lowest option) only in cheap restaurants, low car driving.
I've looked a bit for rents on willhaben.at for 4 room apartment in a decent district (district 19 for example) and prices are close to 1300 EUR per month, total rent.
So living expenses in Viena including rent would be 3489 EUR.
I am in discussion with a job which offers around 3650 EUR NET per month, according to official salary calculator. I will be the single earner in the family in the first 1 - 2 years. So we will use almost entire salary just to be able to live in Vienna, without being able to save anything.
Is Numbeo's estimation for cost of living correct ? For example it estimates around 1000 EUR per month just for food at home, which seems pretty high.
What are the other difficulties one can encounter in Vienna?
Do I need an University degree to work in IT in Vienna?
