The wallets of the self-employed in Slovakia will become lighter at the start of next year as social insurance premiums rise in January.
The minimum contributions will rise by €9.78 to €167.89. This is because, given the figures published by the Statistics Office (ŠÚ SR), the average wage in Slovakia increased year-on-year by 6.2 percent last year, to €1,013, the SITA newswire reported.
A higher minimum assessment base
The minimum assessment base concerning social security contributions for the self-employed is, in fact, linked to the development of employees' average gross earnings. Hence, this base will also be adjusted upwards by 6.2 percent, to €506.50, from January 2020.
