MATA’s official position with respect to social contributions payment novelties concerning translators and interpreters’ fees effective as of 1 January 2015:
As of January 2015, all fees for translation and interpretation services shall be quoted in total gross amount, including all social contributions and the personal income tax. As required by law, clients shall deduct the percentages for social contributions and for personal income tax from the gross amount and pay them on behalf of the translators/interpreters.
In cases where the fee is under the statutory threshold for the social contributions payment to be made by the client, the obligation to pay the social contributions remains with the individual translator/interpreter. Please take note that even the smallest amount shall be quoted and paid in gross amount, out of which the translators/interpreters shall service their contribution payments.
