Parental Pay and taxes

The Statutory Parental Pay is 80% of the monthly salary payment, but not more than ±SEK31733, right?

Does this payment pre-tax one? Should be it be taxed? If yes, what is the actual payment, that I receive?


  • Hello!

    Thank you for your post. Parental benefit is based on the 80% of your salary. There are ceilings for how high SGI you can have. This means that if your income is higher than the ceilings, you will not receive 80 percent of your entire income in benefits, but 80 percent of your SGI. The ceiling in parental benefit is SEK 473,000. Read here for more information.
    You pay tax on parental leave, and it's normally around 30 percent.

    Best regards,
