What is the difference between gross and net salary?

The liquid (net) salary is what you actually receive. Gross wages are what you receive before any withholding or taxes are taken out. For example, if you earn $1000 per month, that would be your gross pay. That amount is reduced by (*) taxes, health, and welfare allowances, among others, which let's suppose the sum of USD$150. Your liquid or net salary would be USD$850.

When you apply for a job on Get on Board, you must specify your expected net salary in dollars. Remember to use whole numbers and in increments of 50 (eg. 900, 950, 1250).
