How are payments made?

As an Employee your Employer should make your NHT contributions payments monthly on your behalf to TAJ.  If you are employed by more than one Employer, each one should make contributions payments on your behalf, within 14 days of the end of the month being paid for.  If your total earning in any week is less than the minimum wage, then you are not required by law to contribute.

Employers are issued a receipt upon payment of employee’s NHT contributions to Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ). Upon request, contributing employees are entitled to and should be afforded the opportunity to inspect receipts reflecting payments made on their behalf.

Please note that as a contributor you MUST inform us of any change in your employment status as soon as possible.
