Example of insurance contributions calculation

If in 2020 you earned taxable income from a foreign employer amounting to NIS 10,000 per month (NIS 120,000 per year), here is the calculation of national and health insurance contributions that you would have to pay:

  • Exempt income - an income of NIS 2,638 per month is not subject to insurance contributions payments. In other words, for a share of NIS 31,656 per year (2,638 multiplied by 12 months) you will not need to pay any insurance contribution.

You have to pay insurance contributions on an annual income of NIS 88,344 (120,000 - 31,656), at following rates:

  • Reduced rate - on the income share between NIS 2,638 and NIS 6,331 per month, a rate of % 9.61 shall be paid. In other words, NIS 355 per month (NIS 4,260 for the whole year).
  • Full rate - on the remaining income of NIS 3,669 per month, insurance contributions shall be paid at a rate of % 12 - or, NIS 440 per month (NIS 5280 for the whole year).

Overall, for an annual income of NIS 120,000, insurance contributions amounting to NIS 9,540 per year shall be paid.
