IMPUTED SOCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Cotisations sociales imputées

Definition:
Social contributions are imputed when employers provide social benefits themselves directly to their employees, former employees or dependants out of their own resources without involving an insurance enterprise or autonomous pension fund, and without creating a special fund or segregated reserve for the purpose; the imputed contributions are equal in value to the amount of social contributions that would be needed to secure the de facto entitlements to the social benefits they accumulate.
