Q: Are the allowances stated in the ITN Guide for Applicants gross or net amounts? (All Calls)
A: The living and mobility allowances are gross Community contributions to the salary costs of the fellow including the employers contributions. Consequently, the net salary results from deducting all compulsory social security contributions as well as direct taxes (e.g. income tax) from the gross amounts. Please remember that social security contributions and taxation of the different allowances vary from country to country. In any case, please note that the mobility, travel and career exploratory allowances have been conceived as separate flat rate amounts and where national taxation allows it, it is the intention that these amounts should not be subject to personal taxation or employers deductions. For more detailed information about the taxation in a specific country, please consult the relevant National Contact Point Cordis - National Contact Points).
