Payment of Contributions

Understand how social security contributions are paid in Cyprus...

Employers must pay their contributions (including the employee's share) monthly and within a month of the applicable contribution period.

Self-employed people pay contributions quarterly in arrears; within one month and ten days from the end of each quarter. It is possible to pay monthly if so desired.

The quarterly due dates are:

  • January to March: deadline is 10th May
  • April to June: deadline is 10th August
  • July to September: deadline is 10th November
  • October to December: deadline is 10th February

Voluntary contributors must pay monthly or quarterly in arrears. If a voluntary contributor does not make full the contribution within one year of the end of the contribution year, voluntary insurance is no longer valid for that year.
