An employee is required to contribute 3% of their monthly salary to the social security system while the employer contributes 4% of the employee's monthly salary.  A foreign employee can apply for an exemption from the social security system, provided that the employee contributes to a similar system in their home country.   

STATUTORY FILING  |  2019 / 2020

Since January 2014, a family unit can no longer be taxed jointly for their earned income.  


From 2018 all taxpayers whose only source of income is from employment and whose income is subject to withholding tax will not be required to submit a return.


Employers withhold the employees' income taxes monthly in accordance with the tax rates approved by law and remit such taxes to the Finance Department before the 20th of the following month
