Members of the Malta Employers' Association and members of the Malta Chamber of Commerce benefit from the MIA member rate.

The MIA Young Members Payroll Event is proudly sponsored by Konnekt.


This event is being organised by the MIA Young Members Group with the purpose of educating attendees on the various aspects of payroll, which are both relevant to employees and employers.

The session will start off with the basic principles of payroll. This will delve into the entitlements of employees for both short andlong-term employment, this includes; notice periods, minimum wages, overtime, leave and government bonuses. Other topics such as wage regulation orders, social security, tax and fringe benefits will also be discussed.

The event will then continue by discussing practical aspects of payroll. This includes the process of appointing an employee, drafting an employment contract and the documentation required by the CFR, and what needs to take place once an employee is hired, such as the FS4 and the Jobsplus registration. Practical scenarios in relation to calculating tax and national insurance and employee terminations will also be discussed.

This will be followed by a panel discussion for frequently asked questions in the areas. The audience will also have the opportunity to ask questions to the panellists.

The attendees are invited for a reception after the event as an opportunity to network.


The objective of the session is for young members and those interested in payroll to be able to have a high-level understanding of the payroll process. Coming out from their accounting qualification, young accountants often struggle in this area. Hence, the Young Members Group feels that an informative session on this topic is due for young accountants to be able to raise awareness of how one’s income is calculated and the legal requirements including documentation to be submitted to the relevant government bodies (ex: Jobsplus, CFR).
