    Taxes & Payroll in Egypt

    Employee Income Taxes:

    Individual income tax rates in Egypt are based on progressive tax brackets.

    Incomes at or bellow 8000 EGP per year are not taxed.

    Tax Brackets

    0%: 0 – 8,000 EGP
    10%: 8,001 – 30,000 EGP
    15%: 30,001 – 45,000 EGP
    20%: 45,001 – 200,000 EGP
    22.5%: > 200,000 EGP

    Sample Calculation

    Yearly income = 40,000 EGP
    15% * 10,000 = 1500
    10% * 22,000 = 2200
    0% * 8000 = 0
    1500+2200+0 = 3700

    Yearly income tax = 3700 EGP

    Benefits & Insurance in Egypt

    In Egypt, mandatory benefits, also known as social insurance, are to be contributed to by both the employer and employee. Contributions are made to the National Organization for Social Insurance (NOSI) and cover old-age, occupational accidents, sickness, and unemployment insurance. It is the employer’s responsibility to withhold the employee’s social insurance contributions at source and make payments each month.

    Pension Fund

    In Egypt, the pension system is administered through the Egyptian Pension Fund (EPF), which provides retirement benefits to eligible workers. It operates as a mandatory social insurance program, where both employees and employers make contributions towards the pension fund. The EPF offers various pension schemes based on employment type, including public and private sector employees, as well as self-employed individuals.

    Healthcare Insurance

    Healthcare insurance in Egypt is primarily provided through a combination of public and private sector initiatives. The main public healthcare insurance program is the Egyptian Health Insurance Organization (EHIO), which offers coverage to eligible citizens and residents. Private health insurance plans are also available and commonly used to supplement the public system, providing additional coverage and access to a wider range of healthcare services.
