Fines in the event of late entry- or discharge declaration with the Joint Social Security Centre (Centre commun de la sécurité sociale – CCSS)

Any employer (or self-employed person) submitting an entry declaration to the CCSS which is more than 30 days late may be fined.

Every employer (or self-employed person) must submit an entry declaration to the CCSS for every person carrying out an activity subject to registration, whether it concerns an employee, a self-employed person, interim staff or, under certain conditions, students or trainees.

A discharge declaration must be submitted to the CCSS when the activity ceases. That declaration will indicate the day when the working relationship ended as the discharge day.

No entry- or discharge declaration is due in the event of:

  • absence due to illness;
  • maternity leave;
  • change of position if there is no change in the risk class.

Entry- and discharge declarations must be submitted to the CCSS within 8 days of the event subject to declaration.

The CCSS will fine the employer for late submission of the form in the amount of EUR 50 for each month of delay (up to a limit of EUR 2,500).
