Provisional tax and SSC on PT1 Form to be submitted by August, 31 2017
All taxpayers and other persons who are obliged to pay their Provisional Tax and their Social Security Contributions Class 2 (self-employed & self occupied status) for the period May to August 2017 should have received their PT1 Form from the Inland Revenue Department. The PT1 Payment Slip with the appropriate payment of tax and SSC (National Insurance Contributions – NI) is to reach the Inland Revenue Department in Floriana by the 31 August 2017. Failure to meet this deadline will attract additional tax and additional SSC fines.
Class 2 Social Security Contributions are payable three times a year in April, August and December. The number of social security contributions due for this period (May to August 2017) is 18. If your PT1 Form does not indicate the appropriate Social Security Rates click here for rates for Basis Year 2017. The social security rates for 2017 are established on the income earned during the basis year 2016 (with certain conditions). Persons who in the preceding year did not earn an annual net profit or income exceeding €910 may be eligible for an exemption from the payment of Social Security Contributions in the contribution payment year.
