Pension saving for the self-employed

Pay less tax, build up more pension income

Premiums for (social) VSPSS remain tax deductible in 2020
You can still deduct the premiums for your standard or social voluntary supplementary pension scheme for the self-employed (VSPSS) from your taxes this year, even if you had to take a social security payment holiday for one or more quarters due to the coronavirus crisis.

The self-employed receive an average statutory pension of 911 euros a month, which is significantly lower than that of private sector employees. Self-employed individuals pay less in social security contributions during their career, which is a key factor in determining the statutory pension.

If you want to maintain your current standard of living, it is in your best interest to start saving for a supplementary pension. And who doesn’t want to maximise tax relief while building up their pension pot?
