HLB KSA Payroll Team
The General Organization for Social Insurance (GOSI) amended the contribution rates in the unemployment insurance system. It was approved to reduce the contribution rates to be (1.5%) one and a half percent instead of (2%) two percent. The GOSI indicated that the rates of bearing the new contributions will be (0.75%) on the Employee and (0.75%) on the employer, instead of (1%) on the Employee and (1%) on the employer.
With this change, the total GOSI percentage for Saudi nationals is 21.5%.

There is no change in the mechanism of collecting the contribution and the decision to reduce the subscription rate does not affect the amount of compensation being paid to the beneficiaries of this program.
