The Malta Commissioner for Revenue has announced an increase in both employer and employees social security contributions for 2022.
All EU national and resident seafarers working on a Malta registered yacht must be registered with Department of Social Security in Malta unless already contributing to another EU social security regime (an exemption will have to be applied for, in writing with supporting evidence of the payment of social security contributions in another member state).
For the majority of crew members the contribution rates are 10% paid by the seafarer and 10% paid by the employer capped in 2022 at 49.97 Euros per week for the seafarer (previously 48.57 Euros) and 49.97 Euros for the employer (previously 48.57 Euros).
The full breakdown of rates is available here.
Oceanskies Crew is registered as a foreign employer with the Malta Inland Revenue Department and, as such, is able to register the yacht crew that it employs with the Malta Department of Social Security and arrange for the payment of social security contributions.
Crew members who are registered will be issued with an A1 Certificate (social security cover) and then may be able to apply for an S1 Certificate and/or EHIC card.
To sign up to the Oceanskies Crew employment and payroll service or to request further information about Malta yacht registration and social security payments for yacht crew please do not hesitate to contact the team here at Oceanskies Crew.
