Higher Wijninckx contributions as of 1 January 2018
Memory refresher: this special contribution is due on 2nd pillar pensions set aside for ordinary salaried employees as well as self-employed workers.
In 2018, the system will continue to apply, but at double the 1.5% contribution.
This means that employers will now be required to pay 3% on supplementary pension contributions for each salaried employee and independent company director for whom the complementary pension contributions exceed above the annual threshold amount of EUR 30,000 (subject to indexation).
