What is BLS?

The Base Listed Salary (Salario Base de Cotización, SBC) calculation in Mexico is a method used to determine the salary amount on which social security contributions are based. It is a crucial element in the Mexican social security system and is used to calculate contributions and benefits for employees under the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS).

The calculation of the SBC involves summing up various components of an employee's remuneration. These components typically include fixed elements such as the regular salary, as well as variable elements like bonuses, commissions, and other benefits. Certain allowances and fringe benefits may also be considered in this calculation.

The SBC has a maximum limit set by the IMSS, ensuring that contributions are capped at a certain level. This limit is adjusted periodically to reflect changes in economic conditions. The SBC calculation is essential for employers to comply with their legal and fiscal obligations regarding social security contributions in Mexico. It also ensures that employees are adequately covered in terms of social security benefits, which are based on their contributions calculated from the SBC.


iCalculator™ MX uses the annual salary entered as the BLS for the employee when completing annual tax calculations for employees in Mexico.
