A. Social security
Social insurance contributions are levied only on Egyptian nationals
with full-time employment. An employee pays 14% on monthly
base salary up to EGP1,012.50, and 11% on monthly amounts
exceeding this amount or on other payments, including overtime or
representation allowances, up to EGP1,590.
To provide relief from double social security taxes and to assure
benefit coverage, Egypt has concluded tantalization agreements
with Cyprus, Greece, the Netherlands and Sudan, which usually
apply for an unlimited period of time.
