Self-Employed Contribution Rates in Malta

Self-employed and self-occupied persons contribute to the national insurance contribution in the following scale:

Class Two Contributions are to be paid by all individuals who derive income of more than €910 from an economic activity and who are not employed.

The Social Security Act defines two (2) categories of persons that are required to pay Class 2 Contributions as follows:

Self Occupied Persons – persons who earn income from Trade, Business, Profession, Vocation or any other economic activity that exceeds €910 per annum.

Self Employed Persons – persons who receive income from rents, investments, capital gains or any other income.

Rates for Class Two Social Security Contributions are based on the annual net profit or income for the year preceding the contribution payment year.

*The SP rate applies only to single persons who are not self occupied.

NOTE 2: The increase in the highest contribution rate payable is related to a guaranteed maximum pensionable income as a result of the pension reform which became law by virtue of Act XIX of 2006 and Legal Notice 336 of 2006.
