How much fee do you need to pay?
You need to pay the Maktab Amal fee of SR 7,200 for the year 2019 which will further increase to SR 9,600 for the year 2020 to the Ministry of Labor. However, if the Saudization percentage in your company is more than 50%, you will get an SR 1,200 discount on the fee.
