Health & Safety-Social Security
Where an employer is unable to pay the social security contributions due within the predefined time limits, the Joint Social Security Centre (CCSS) will, in principle, charge interest on arrears.
However, as a result of the crisis in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCSS will continue to not collect interest on arrears in the event of late payment of social security contributions.
As a matter of fact, the calculation of interest on arrears will remain suspended until 30 June 2021.
After 30 June 2021, interest on arrears is reduced to 0 % if the employers and self-employed will meet the payment deadlines they have been granted, in other words if the normal contributions and the monthly down payment on their debt are paid in a timely manner.
Under certain conditions, the Luxembourg government may grant financial aid to farms operating in the pig sector in Luxembourg which have suffered a loss of turnover due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new procedures for applying for aid for costs not covered, set up by the Ministry of the Economy as part of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, will be communicated as soon as possible.
