Average annual salary in the Netherlands 2017, by age The average annual salary in the Netherlands in 2017 was just over 33,700 euros, including bonuses. The average employee reached his or her highest annual salary between the age of 50 and 54 years old, at over 44,000 euros. Up to that point, the average annual salary generally increased, from about 1,360 euros per year for those under 15, to 44,200 for those 50-54 years old. After that age, average annual salaries decreased again, to about 15,300 euros for those 75 years and older.
 Highest salaries in the mining and quarrying industry

  Those looking to make a substantial amount of money were best off in the mining and quarrying industry, where average annual wages reached nearly 84,000 euros in 2017. Employees in the electricity and gas supply sector earned roughly 61,100 euros, and those working in finance made nearly as much, at 60,900 euros. On the lower end of the scale, employees in the accommodation and food serving industry earned an average annual salary of only 13,200 euros, or over six times less than employees in the best-paying sector.

Gender differences

   In general, annual salaries for men were considerably higher than salaries for women. Whereas men earned an average annual salary of nearly 42,000 in 2017, women in the Netherlands on average made about 25,500 euros annually. This was not just the result of men having a higher average hourly salary, to some extent this was also a consequence of women working fewer hours than men. Whereas men in the Netherlands on average worked 33.3 hours per week in 2017, women worked only 24.3 hours.
