Kurzarbeit Calculator

During Kurzarbeit you will earn a lower gross salary. How will your net salary change and what are the tax implications? Find out with our Kurzarbeit calculator.

How it works

Fill in a few conditions

First, you must enter both the gross wage before short-time work (Bruttolohn vor Kurzarbeit) and the gross wage during short-time work (Bruttolohn in Kurzarbeit). Then you have to enter the number of months you will be in short-time work (Wie vile Monate werden Sie dieses Jahr in Kurzarbeit sein?) before you enter your tax class (Steuerklasse) and the child allowance (Kinderfreibetrag).
