letter template Request for a delay in payment of social security contributions to URSSAF Why ask URSSAF for a deferment of payment of social security contributions? As an employer of a company, you can request a deferment of payment from URSSAF. It is possible that, due to temporary cash flow difficulties, your company is unable to pay the totality of the social charges required by the URSSAF. Only the URSSAF director can decide to grant a delay in the payment of social security contributions. In order to benefit from this grace period, the employer must send a letter to the URSSAF management so that the latter can grant you this period for the payment of your employee contributions. In the body of the letter template, you should indicate the year of your contributions, the reasons and difficulties that prevent you from paying your social security contributions within the legal deadline, as well as the amount of the contribution. The presentation of financial guarantees is equally important in the letter requesting payment of social security contributions. The letter must be addressed to the URSSAF director. Is it possible to request a delay in the payment of employee and employer contributions? The answer is NO. In order for your request for deferment to be accepted by URSSAF, it is essential that you first pay all employee contributions. It is on the basis of the employer's contributions that you have paid to the URSSAF that the deferment of the debt will be worked out. As long as you have not paid them, you will not be granted this payment delay for the employer's contributions. The different reasons to be presented to obtain a delay of payment from the URSSAF The reasons must mainly relate to economic or financial difficulties that your company is going through or cash flow problems. For example, you can mention the following reasons:
-Loss of an important contract
-Sudden departure without giving instructions of the person in charge of the payment of the employer's contributions
-Loss of equipment due to fire or flood
-Non-payment of invoices from large customers
