Wage income types

Income types of the Incomes Register 

A payment made to an income earner, such as wages, can comprise several different income types. The data is reported to the Incomes Register using income types.

An income type is a three-digit code value. The income type indicates what kind of income is in question. The income types of the Incomes Register correspond to the most common pay types used by payroll administrations.

Several different income types can be reported on an earnings payment report for the same income earner. However, the income types reported on the same report must have the same payment date.

In addition to monetary wages, an income earner can be paid, for example, fringe benefits, reimbursements of expenses, commissions, or other supplements to the regular wages. The income type must match the actual payment situation. 

The data provider chooses which income type to use and reports the amount paid in addition to the code value of the income type. The payments made are reported to the Incomes Register in euros.

The income types are divided into four series

The recommendation is to report income comprehensively using the

200, 300 and 400 series income types.

  • The 200 series income types are used to report monetary wages in an itemised manner.
  • The 300 series income types are separately reported income types. They are mandatory data if such income is paid.
  • The 400 series income types are used to report items deducted from the wages. They are mandatory data if the item in question has been deducted from the wages.The income types are described in the instruction:
  • If you wish to report monetary wages as a total amount, use the 100 series income types.

The income types are described in the instruction: Descriptions of income types and items deducted from income (PDF)

The table below shows the social insurance contributions to which each income type is subject. If the income is paid according to the default, the social insurance contributions do not need to be specially determined. The social insurance contributions for some income types can vary by payment situation. If the payment is made in non-default situations – for example, the income earner is not employed by the payer – the payer can use the Type of insurance data related to the income type. The table shows the default values ‚Äčof social security contributions for different income types and the income types for which social insurance contributions may vary.
