Over 90,000 still await­ing EFKA no­tice

Kathimerini English - - Focus - ROULA SALOUROU

Two days be­fore the (al­ready ex­tended) dead­line for the pay­ment of Jan­uary’s so­cial se­cu­rity con­tri­bu­tions, more than 90,000 work­ers re­main scratch­ing their heads as their pay no­tices have not yet been put up on the web­site of the new Sin­gle So­cial Se­cu­rity Con­tri­bu­tion (EFKA).

Those af­fected in­clude some 60,000 salary em­ploy­ees who also do other work for which they is­sue ser­vice in­voices. In their case, the cir­cu­lar de­ter­min­ing the amount of their con­tri­bu­tions has not yet been re­leased.

Another 31,000 are salaried en­gi­neers who had in­voice books for ser­vices ren­dered (known as “blokakia”) in 2015. They do not ap­pear in the sys­tem, as it has not been ver­i­fied whether they still have ac­tive in­voice books.

Other pend­ing is­sues con­cern salaried lawyers, as the cir­cu­lar re­gard­ing their con­tri­bu­tions has not been is­sued ei­ther.

EFKA data show that the rate of col­lec­tion for Jan­uary con­tri­bu­tions from the self-em­ployed, free­lancers and farm­ers has reached just 50-55 per­cent.
