Is every self-employed person obliged to contribute to Bitouah Leoumi?

All entrepreneurs are obliged to declare themselves as self-employed and to pay contributions to the Bitouah Leoumi However, some self-employed people are exempt from this tax. They will therefore not be "socially covered" as well.MAKE YOUR SIMULATION BITOUAH LEOUMI OSSEK MOURCHE / OSSEK PATOUR

Here are the criteria for being recognized as independent at Bituah Leumi and subject to contributions (only one is required):

  1. Work in the business for at least 20 hours a week.
  2. The monthly benefit is a minimum of 5,935 shekels, regardless of the number of hours worked.
  3. Work in the business for at least 12 hours a week and have a minimum monthly income of 1,781 shekels.

So we see that a very short list of independents does not have to contribute to the Bitouah Leoumi.

It's important to be in good standing with this institution, otherwise you'll have to pay penalties and retroactive amounts. These amounts can be substantial, often running into tens of thousands of shekalim.
