Depending on the person you hire, you can obtain a reduction in employer social security contributions. It is possible to combine it with a "target group" reduction.
Employment aids generally consist of a structural reduction in employers' social security contributions or a financial allowance. Attention: the structural reduction has been radically reformed as part of the tax shift (overall reduction in basic contributions). This means that all workers are no longer eligible for this reduction. The amount of the reduction varies according to the category to which the worker belongs, the worker's quarterly salary and the volume of his benefits. This amount is obtained according to specific mathematical formulas.
The target groups
The structural reduction in social security contributions can only be combined with one (and not more than one) so-called "target group" reduction. The idea is clearly to encourage employers to hire certain categories of workers. Among these, we can mention the :
- Six first hires (FR)
- Young workers via the Activa.brussels aid
- Long-term unemployed via the Activa.brussels aid
- Older workers (FR) ;
- Jobseekers aged 57+ via Activa.brussels
- Permanent workers in the hotel and catering sector (FR);
- Collective reduction of the working time and 4-day week (FR);
