Maternity pay calculator 2023
In the Czech Republic, employed women who have been working in the country for at least one year can qualify for maternity pay. Use the calculator below to see how much money you could receive while on maternity leave as a full time employee.
It’s possible to claim Czech maternity leave from 6 to 8 weeks before the expected date of birth with a duration of 28 weeks (and 37 weeks for twins). You shall be employed or out of work for less than 180 days (only women) to claim this benefit. Paternity leave follows different rules, so you will get different instructions for Czech paternity leave.
There is a difference between claiming maternity and maternity leave in the Czech Republic. Maternity is just support covered by your employer since you are not able to work, because you take care of your baby and Czech maternity leave is an extra support from the Czech Authority.
Maternity leave in the Czech Republic is 70% from a tax base, where a tax base is counted from a gross salary in the past 12 months, which is divided by the amount of days in a given season. A monthly payment is not fixed and can be different every month, since it’s counted by days, not a full month.
The monthly limit for Czech maternity leave in 2023 is 34.620CZK and there are no other taxes or fees to be paid from the final amount. If your gross salary is higher than the Czech Republic’s average, or approximately 108.000CZK, then you can also claim up to 43.470CZK.
