Working with MOLSA to pay social security taxes
In this month, Mercy Hands started working with officials from the Iraqi Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (MOLSA) to set a mechanism for Mercy Hands to pay the employer's and employees' social security taxes on monthly basis.
By law, Mercy Hands' employees are required to pay social security taxes, regardless of the amount of their earnings or their type of employment. As an employer, Mercy Hands is also required to pay social security taxes.
Mercy Hands will inform all its partners and donors of the new arrangements and work with them to ensure that all funded projects are implemented in compliance with MOLSA's laws and regulations.
