The study, carried out by Income Tax, found that Ireland came in just below Bulgaria and Poland, who pay the first and second lowest tax, respectively.

Income Tax’s investigation found that someone who earned a €3,000 monthly salary would take home €2,466, meaning they would pay €534 in tax each month. This compares to Bulgaria’s €2,690.32 take home, paying €309.68 in tax each month.

Comparatively. the highest-taxed country in Europe is Lithuania, who pay €1,248 from a €3,000 salary every month, meaning they take home €1,752.

A spokesperson for Income Tax UK said: “It’s very interesting to see the tax differences across Europe for an average monthly salary. As we shift to a more remote working culture, those with the ability to work from anywhere also have the opportunity to maximise their income. Romania and Bulgaria border each other, yet the difference in salary after tax is more than £800.”
