English term or phrase:cash salary
Employer contributions are subject to 8.86 % social security contribution (compared to 35 % for cash salary)
"These figures are "cash salary" only; in cases where free or subsidized housing and/or board is provided, the cash salaries are likely to be somewhat lower."
In English, the term is often used for clergy and educators at private schools because they usually or often receive living quarters with their positions. You might say that "Bargehalt" is a non-word in German, but it gets 16 AltaVista hits. Many of these German hits were historical texts also concerning clergy and educators but some were modern concerning tax-saving payment methods.
