Remuneration of the management board


Remuneration payable to a member of the management board with A1/E101

 

With an A1/E101 certificate, a person who works outside the country where he/she has social security insurance can prove that he/she is covered under that country's social insurance legislation for e.g. old age pension, child benefit and unemployment. All European Union countries use A1/E101 certificates. To avoid paying social security tax in Estonia you must present your A1/E101 certificate to Estonian tax authorities.
