Extension of the general decrease in contributions
Last up dating on Tuesday 01 October 2019
From the January 2019 employment period, the general decrease in contributions is extended to apply to supplementary pension and unemployment insurance contributions.
For most employees, this extension has been applied in two phases: the extension to supplementary pension contributions has been taken into account from January 2019 while unemployment insurance contributions has been taken into account from October 2019.
In January 2019, the overall extension will apply only to those contracts for which a specific exemption program has been canceled or modified : apprenticeship contracts (“contrats d’apprentissage”) and job-entry contracts (“contrats de professionnalisation”).
