 Statutory Bonus & Weekly Allowance Entitlement  [2007 to 2013] - FAQ

All Full-Time and Part-Time employees in Malta are entitled to a taxable statutory Bonus which is included with the salary four times a year. 

Part-Time employees are entitled to pro-rata bonuses.  These rules apply also to Part-Time employees who have a full-time employment elsewhere.

There are two types of “Bonuses” payable during the year known as “Statutory Bonus” and “Weekly Allowance” and these are paid in four installments as follows:

Statutory Bonus
- January - June payable by end of June
- July - December payable by the 23rd December

Weekly Allowance
- October to March payable by end of March
- April to September payable by end of September

Those Full-Time employees who terminate their employment are entitled to a pro-rata Bonus on termination calculated as follows:
- Weekly allowance - €0.74 per calendar day including Saturdays and Sundays
- Statutory Bonus - €4.66 per working week or portion thereof
