There are two terms for salary: gross and net. Gross is the total salary paid to you and net is your
salary after taxes and other expenses are deducted.
If all you want to know is how much your "take-home pay"--the amount of money you actually get to
take home and spend on things like food, rent, utilities, clothing, and entertainment--will be, you
can use that term. It's almost equivalent to "net earnings", your salary after income taxes,
retirement fund deductions, and national health insurance fees are deducted.
