Each employee and employer in B&H every month sets aside a lot of money on the net salary to finance pensions and health insurances, and also to finance the government activities and services to citizens. Citizens and employers so far did not know how much of their money is being spent on one of these functions.
On the web page www.budzeti.ba , where citizens could see the division of the state budget to entities, cantons and district, from today to B&H citizens the applications Tax calculator is available.
The application calculates how much the employer and the employee each month sets aside for various purposes: pension, health, state government operations, security, culture, environmental protection etc, by simply selecting the entity or district and setting the net salary on the sliding scale.
In a few seconds how the money is divided every month and for what it is spent on could be seen.
