MFD: Minister wants to increase health insurance tradesmen


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - Higher levy on health insurance for entrepreneurs and for people living in rental or capital investment. This idea is Health Minister Leos Heger (TOP 09) for greater justice in the field of health insurance, writes in Tuesday's issue of daily MF Dnes.

These two groups of taxpayers contributing to the system is less insurance than workers in proportion to what they earn. Health insurance is calculated them from a lower base than the gross income. The insurance pays his employees. Heger would like to change. "We would like to pay by the amount of the tax base.Minister Kalousek promises tax reform within the next year to prepare a simplification to the tax base payments unfolded health and social tax, "Heger said DNES.

While employees now pay insurance premiums from their gross wages, entrepreneurs (about 900 thousand people) pay only half of its tax base. Four-fifths of them, according to NGA dopočítají only the statutory minimum of 1 601 CZK. Rentiers (about 250 000 people) pay only the compulsory minimum 1 080 CZK, regardless of income. In contrast, an employee with the company pays 13.5 percent of gross pay - the average wage is 23 000 3 105 per month.

Change anything for such an important group of taxpayers will be politically difficult. "Entrepreneur of the tanning money more work than an employee," said MF DNES Břetislav Ošťádal, Chairman of the Association of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and Crafts.
