In January 2012 full time employees had an average monthly gross salary of 219 000HUF in the national economy, and net salary was 141 600HUF (this latter figure does not take into consideration the impact of tax benefits for children in a family).
Consequently, in the past two years, from January 2010 gross average salaries rose by almost 13 000HUF and net average salaries by almost 8 000HUF.
The average gross salary of private sector employees rose by 5.2 percent – compared to the previous year – and it is thus 225 000HUF, while the average salary for public sector employees rose by 1.4 percent and is currently 206 800HUF.
Remuneration have still been highest in the financial and insurance sector, followed by the information, communication and energy sectors. The lowest paid employees were in the accomodation services, hospitality and administrative services sectors.
