Belarus to raise base amount on 1 September

MINSK, 31 August (BelTA) – The base amount in Belarus will be gradually increased starting from September. Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko signed the corresponding resolution, the press service of the government reported.

The base amount will be increased to Br211 from 1 September 1 and Br212 from 1 November.

A phased increase in the salaries of public sector employees continues in 2022 on the back of an increase in the base amount, the Labor and Social Security Ministry explained. In H1, the base amount was increased from Br198 to Br210 (by 6%). As a result, the average annual base amount in 2022 will be Br209.8 (up by 6.9% over last year). Since other incentive and compensatory payments are tied to the base amount, the increase in wages on the heels of the base amount growth will average Br12 (from Br5 to Br30). About Br59 million will be allocated from the budget to increase the base amount.

Taking into account the importance of this issue, the government decided to additionally increase the salaries of kindergarten teachers and assistant teachers as schools are going back in session. From 1 September, preschool teachers will get an allowance of 20% of the salary, teacher assistants - 10% of the salary.
