Any person who is the owner and manager can be insured as a self-insured person on a minimum insurable income of BGN 710,00 in 2022 up to a maximum insurable income of BGN 3400,00. The amount of social security contributions for SSS, SM, and SMPS per month is 27.8% of the selected insurance income. In this case, the person does not receive a salary and, accordingly, the insurances are not recognised as the company’s expense.
When a person chooses to be insured through a labour contract, each occupation and position in a different economic activity has a minimum salary threshold. In this case, the gross salary is deducted at the expense of the worker, then the DOD is deducted from the salary, and the rest is transferred to the employee. At the same time, insurances at the expense of the employer are also due. Salary in Bulgaria can be paid in cash every month as the worker signs up on a salary payroll and a payslip that states that he has received his salary in cash. When the salary is transferred via bank, a signature is not required as it is visible from the bank account statement.
It must be kept in mind that the maximum insurable income is BGN 3400,00, which means that in the case of a salary over this amount, the insurances are due to BGN 3400,00, and only income tax is due on the whole amount.
Appointment and termination of employment
The number and the date of conclusion of the contract, the gross salary, the occupation, and the economic activity of the company are announced to the NRA. The starting date must be at least one day before the start date. Nothing can be done retrospectively in the labour contracts. The labour relations are terminated at most seven days afterwards.
All contributions are due by the 25th of the following month.
After the end of the calendar year, by June 30th of the following year, an annual tax return, an annual financial statement for statistics, and profit tax of 10% must be paid. It is offset by the realized profit, and the remaining amount can be distributed as a dividend to the owner by paying 5% of the distributed amount. The rest is transferred to the owner’s personal bank account. If revenue is EUR 90,000 per year and no costs, tax will be 10%, EUR 9,000, due until June 30th of the following year. After tax deduction, the remaining amount of EUR 81,000 may be distributed as a dividend at a desired time and a 5% dividend tax, EUR 4050, must be paid. If the company has costs, they are deducted from the revenue, and then the corresponding taxes are charged – 10% profit tax and 5% dividend tax.
