Salary increase and double employment, how they affected the budget, the analysis in 5 years reveals, the year 2024 marks a collection record

Salary increase and double employment, how they affected the budget, the

The income that the state budget collects from the tax applied on the salaries of Albanian citizens is increasing progressively from year to year. The official data of the Ministry of Finance shows that the personal income tax was collected in the amount of 21 billion ALL in the first 4 months of the year, 2.9 billion ALL or 16.2% more than the 4th month of 2023, as well as 2.1% more than the plan . SCAN has analyzed the income over the years for the same period, specifically January-April, and it is noted that from the 12.9 billion ALL collected in 2020, the pace of growth has been evident, reaching a jump of 37.2 percent during this year . But what are the influencing factors? Despite the fact that some reforms have been made to reduce the tax on salaries, this trend seems to have been influenced by the reform of salary increases in the public sector, causing the tax paid to be higher. With the current scheme, salaries up to ALL 50,000 are exempt from income tax. This reform is expected to give a positive impact in this direction again after the increase that will start from July. On the other hand, employees in the private sector have also benefited from this reform, due to the incentives given to companies. Another factor is related to the two employees, for whom it became mandatory to complete the Individual Income Declaration (DIVA) and the salary tax as a single one, despite the fact that the employee was paid by different companies. Currently, the Minister of Finance is discussing some facilities for employees in the country, where it is foreseen that, starting from July, for high salaries, the tax limit of 23% will be applied above the level of 250,000 ALL per month. Currently, this level is 200 thousand ALL. In the item of personal income tax, the highest contribution is made by the tax on the salaries of employees in the private and public sector, followed by the tax paid from the sale of real estate, which is at the level of 15 percent, as well as the tax on rents . Tax on income from dividends and tax on interest income also occupy a considerable space. Personal income tax is the second most influential item in the annual state budget, after VAT, and accounts for nearly 26.7% of total tax revenue.
