Tax returns

IPR is withheld at source by the employer via the pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) system only.

There is neither obligation nor possibility for employees to file an individual tax return and to pay IPR directly.

In May 2015, a single tax return was instituted for declaration and payment of taxes, social contributions, and employer contributions on salaries. In practise, the single tax return entered into force on 31 August 2015.

Payment of tax

IPR is paid monthly by the employer by the 15th day of the month following the month of payment of the salary.
