Top 100 Countries By Average Salary Per Person After Tax

In most countries it’s rare that money is fairly dispersed. This is primarily due to a countries tax rates and the minimum wage there. Those factors then fall to how well a country is governed and its population. Countries with little debt, a relatively small population and minimal annual expenditures will generally have lower tax rates. This then leads to other areas being benefited and overall a higher average salary after tax.

In saying that, a high average salary doesn’t always mean a thriving governing body presides over the nation. Countries rich in valuable commodities can easily bear high average salaries after tax. Considering all of these factors lets get into the list.

Data gathered from Numbeo helped to build this list.

As you can see Bermuda and Switzerland come in first and second by far with a separation of close to $3000 between the two and a separation of over $20000 between 2nd and third. Bermuda could be expected to rank high as it only has a small population and is considered to be a tax haven. Switzerland’s ranking at second though is an incredible accomplishment. With a population to manage of over 8 million Switzerland is no easy country to manage showing how well the country is managed.
