In addition to their monthly salary, each employee in Austria is additionally paid two monthly salaries, one in June (“vacation salary”) and one in November (“Christmas salary”). Each additional salary payment is equal to the employee’s standard monthly salary. Because of their unique nature, these additional payments are taxed at a lower tax rate than standard salary payments. .
