Revenue
Revenue of social security funds.
Social contribution
Social contribution is subdivided into households 'social contributions and employers' social contributions.
'Households' contributions are social contributions payable on their own behalf by employees, self-employed or non-employed persons to social insurance schemes. For example, non-employed persons pay social contributions levied over their social benefits.
'Employers' contributions are paid by employers to social security schemes and other employment-related social insurance schemes to secure social benefits for their employees.
