Light entrepreneur’s payroll calculator

With our payroll calculator, you can conveniently calculate how much of your invoiced sum you will actually get. You can also calculate how much you should invoice in order to get a certain net pay.

This is how the salary of an Omapaja light entrepreneur is formed

Invoicing (VAT 0%)

- Possible income-generating costs (e.g. purchases of materials and supplies)
- Possible income-generating travel expenses
= Gross salary
- Withholding tax according to the tax card
= Net salary
- Omapaja service fee 2-4% of invoicing
- Insurance fee 3% of invoicing
- Health insurance contribution 1.53% of gross salary (withheld only from those subject to YEL, entrepreneurs' pension insurance)
- Possible YEL insurance premium
= Amount payable

The numbers of our payroll calculator are indicative. Please note that VAT must always be added to the total amount of the customer’s invoice. The VAT exemption for small activities cannot be applied in the case of light entrepreneurs, because Omapaja’s total turnover exceeds the limit of 15,000 euros.

If you have taken out an YEL insurance policy through Omapaja, your personal YEL insurance premium will be deducted from your salary.

Omapaja service fee also includes accident and liability insurance. Omapaja service fees and health insurance premiums are deductible in your personal taxation.
