Individual - Other taxes

Last reviewed - 10 January 2020

Social security contributions

In addition to PIT, individuals must pay compulsory social security contributions. Both employer and employee must contribute. Contributions are withheld by the employer at the time of payment of income. Self-employed persons must pay income tax and social security contributions themselves. The basis is the gross amount of income. The types of contributions are generally as follows:

Type of contribution Employee (%) Employer (%)
Pension insurance 15.50 8.85
Health insurance 6.36 6.56
Unemployment 0.14 0.06
Injury at work 0.00 0.53
Maternity leave 0.10 0.10
Total 22.10 16.10

In case the recipient of income is not mandatorily socially insured in Slovenia on another basis, the above security contributions apply to income from the other dependent relationship (e.g. work contract, author fee contract) as well. If the individual is enrolled in the mandatory social security system in Slovenia on another basis, only certain social security contributions are applicable to income from other dependent relationships.

Payers of tax are obligated to pay social security contributions on the day of payment of wages or salaries.

Special tax for work contracts

The payer is obligated to pay a special tax at a rate of 25% of the gross amount payable to individuals who are working for the payer (legal entity or natural person) on the basis of single work or service contract. The tax payment should be made within thirty days of the income payment to the individuals.
