Note:

Remuneration includes salary and taxable benefits if any. The inclusion of taxable benefits may move individuals into the next relevant band. The difference in total staff numbers in the table is due to one person who was on or below a salary of €100,000 earning over €100,001 in total remuneration when their taxable benefit was added.
