SSI Premium Calculation on R&D-Tecnology Regions

Social Security Institution has published a new Communique (No:2021/8) and changed the related part on the Communique 2020/20 about the social security premium calculations of the employees working on R&D or Technology Development areas in line with the related Laws no: 5746 and 4691.

Per that regulation; income tax and stamp tax would be applied for the wages of the R&D employees working in the scope of the Law No 4691. During the calculation of gross and net wages, income tax and stamp tax would be taken into account.

Accordingly, the approach of the gross and net wage calculations would be as below:

Gross Wage: Net Wage + Social Security Premium (Employee Portion) + Unemployment Premium (Employee Portion) + Income Tax + Stamp Tax

Net Wage: Gross Wage - Social Security Premium (Employee Portion) - Unemployment Premium (Employee Portion) - Income Tax - Stamp Tax
