Just to add- I agree entirely with Elisabeth's comment. It would be very helpful to show also "tarif petite equipe". "Prelevement sur le salaire" would be precisely staff assessment, which is so important for us as to avoid double taxation, and would include medical insurance, and eventually CPIC/CPIT deductions, if any.....

Dear Phil,

to have both - gross and net rates in the contract (as it had been previously) has a very important role: the difference is STAFF ASSESSMENT. Indication of amount /staff assessment in the contract seems to be the only convincing piece in the document, for tax inspectors in many countries, that our salary cannot be taxed again. Staff assessment is internal tax levied on all staff - short-term, permanent, etc. Without staff assessment we are consultants, which we should not be. 

I think it would be very important to go show on our contracts both gross and net salary (that would also mean that staff assessment clearly shows too). All my free-lance contracts with UN common system, Secretaterait etc. (1992-2006) had these figures. I find it difficult to understand why some of the contracts don't mention them, apparently...  Under  a UN contract we are UN staff, bound by obligations of UN staff, etc. , and staff assessment is levied on all UN staff salaries, except of consultants. Yet consultants' pay is subject to national taxation, and staff assessment is not levied. There is no gross and net salary difference for consultants, and no staff of assessment (internal tax deducted at source) for consultants, and this is precisely the reason why UN consultants' pay is subject to national tax.

The daily pay to short-term conference interpreters is based on the net salary of a P4 Step VI with dependents which is currently $80,502.  This number is divided by 221 and to it are then added 9% social security and the post adjustment for each of the HQ cities (or the average of a basket of cities for the World Rate).  The gross rate has not been referred to by either the UN or by AIIC since I became a member of the Delegation.

That being said the gross rate for P4/VI with dependents is $98,104.  If you subtract the net from the gross the difference is $17,602.  If you divide that by 221 you get a daily amount of $79.647.  Therefore is you add that to the daily amount you can work out the gross rate.

If you think it useful we could talk to the CEB about publishing both rates. I would however like to know why you consider the information useful.

Bonjour à tous, Comme Julia l'a demandé il y a un an, il serait utile d'afficher le taux net ET le taux brut, où se trouve l'information ?

Bonjour à tous, Autrefois figuraient sur cette page une mention au sujet du tarif petite équipe (160% du tarif de base), et une mention concernant les prélèvements sur salaire. Sauf erreur de ma part, je ne vois plus ces mentions ici, et pourtant c'était bien utile quand on expliquait au fonctionnaire d'un bureau de terrain qu'une majoration de 160% s'applique, pour le travail en petite équipe. Cela était directement corroboré par la mention sur cette page. Maintenant il faut aller se référer à l'accord ce qui est beaucoup moins pratique pour une négociation rapide. Merci

We used to see posted both gross and net UN rates. That was very convenient, as staff assessment which makes the difference between gross and net is our justification for tax-free earnings in the UN system... Julia

Chers collègues, Avant tout, meilleurs voeux pour une excellente année 2013! Nous sommes déjà le 9 janvier; la mise à jour des taux n'a toujours pas été affichée. En outre, j'aimerais savoir si nous aurons le texte définitif de l'Accord avant la prochaine renégociation. Bien à vous!
