Once taxes, fees and the Cool Company fee have been deducted, you receive your salary, which is between 60-70% of your invoiced amount, VAT excluded.
You can receive your salary once your assignment giver has made the payment. If you choose the corresponding setting, your salary will be paid out automatically. Otherwise you can choose manual payment and decide for yourself when and how much you can receive in salary.
Please remember that it takes 2-4 banking days before the money becomes visible on your bank account.
We take 6.98 % of the invoiced amount, VAT excluded.
