For traders and professionals, the contribution is increased for the collaborating spouse or partner or for a non-salaried family assistant.

For micro-entrepreneurs who have opted for the micro-social plan, the PSC corresponds to a percentage of the previous year's turnover and is therefore added to the social security contributions due.
