Taxes on labour income

Explanatory notes

Each country provides detailed information on the data presented within the personal income tax rates and social security contributions tables.

Non-tax compulsory payments (NTCP)

Non-tax compulsory payments (NTCPs) operate in a similar way to taxes in that they serve either to increase the employer’s labour costs or to reduce the employee’s net take-home pay. 

Published: April 2019
Source: Non-tax compulsory payments

Table notes

In many OECD countries employers have to make compulsory payments on behalf of their employees which do not qualify as taxes and social security contributions. The OECD has therefore calculated a set of compulsory payment indicators which are designed to show the combined impact of taxes and NTCPs net of benefits.
