What is the standard salary payment rhythm in Spain?

In Spain, salaries are typically paid monthly, directly into an employee's bank account.


The specific deadline for salary payments can vary according to the employment contract or collective bargaining agreements. However, it is common practice for salaries to be paid on a monthly basis, typically at the end of the month or within the first few days of the following month. Employers are expected to adhere to the agreed payment schedule as outlined in the employment contract or applicable collective agreements. 


Addi
tionally, it's common for employees to receive two extra payments per year, often in summer and at Christmas, effectively spreading the annual salary over 14 payments instead of 12. This practice can vary based on the employment contract or collective bargaining agreements specific to different sectors or companies.
