However, the unpaid NSSF contributions and their related discounted penalties can be paid by installments to the NSSF over 5 years with an interest rate of 5% per year provided that 20% of the late payment and the discounted penalties are paid within 6 months from the publication of this law. In case of a failure to pay an installment, all the taxes will be due in addition to 12% interest.We remain at your disposal should you need any further clarification or information.
