The pricing of the premium plan is based on the number of employees participating companies have. The annual fee is €75 for companies employing 1-19 staff; €150 for a staff complement of 20-79, €250 for a staff complement of 80-150, and €360 for a staff complement of 150+.

 "Our database is updated every fortnight, therefore it offers real-time data: shows a valid reflection of the Maltese labour market and of the wages that are being paid," Project Leader Analise Germani says.

Participation in the database is easy: companies share their anonymised salary details with, the roles are matched with standardised roles and then validated by the submitting company. Once this is done, a company becomes part of the database, and can immediately enjoy the benefits of a free plan.

All salary data provided by individuals is validated with a recent payslip, while data submitted by companies is verified through a string of discussions and reviews. Once the data is verified and matched, it is analysed against other data sets to confirm its reliability, uploaded in aggregate and becomes visible for the users of the system.

For each of the plans, your salary data must be submitted. A fresh dataset would also need to be submitted yearly for renewal.
