International Global Payroll and Taxation in Kuwait
Employment related taxes
There is no personal income tax (PIT) imposed on individuals in Kuwait.
Social security contributions. For Kuwaiti employees, contributions are payable monthly by both the employer and employee under the Social Security Law. Benefits provided include pensions on retirement and allowances for disability, sickness, and death.
Residence (Local & Expat). Currently, there are no social security obligations for expatriate workers in Kuwait. However, for such expatriate workers, the Kuwait Labour Law provides for terminal indemnity payments (applicable only to those who have completed three years of their service) calculated at 15 days’ pay-per-year for the first three years of service and 2/3 month’s pay-per-year thereafter.
Nontaxable payments. Tax-exempt payments are not applicable as there is no personal tax in Kuwait.
