The Government of Jersey has passed new legislation to reduce Social Security contributions for employees and self-employed by 2% commencing 1 October 2020 through to 30 June 2021.
The new Regulations will help our local economy recover from the effects of Covid-19.
In practice, this means:
• for employees, a 4% contribution rate (instead of 6%) on earnings up to £4,558 per month, and
• for self-employed people, a 10.5% contribution rate (instead of 12.5%) on business income up to £4,558 per month.
• employer contribution rates will not change
