Labour costs

The total labour costs are formed by the employer’s expenditure necessary to employ the staff.

The labour costs include remuneration for the work done both in money (direct remuneration) and in goods and services (wages and salaries in kind); employers’ compulsory and voluntary social contributions paid for the employees; employers’ direct social contributions to employees, as well as other costs arising when employing the workforce. 

In calculations the wage and salary subsidies are subtracted from the labour costs.
