We have already informed you of the changes to the meal allowance several times this year, and there is yet another change again. With effect from 1st January 2023, meal allowances are to be changed as follows:
- EUR 6.80 for the time zone of 5 hours to 12 hours,
- EUR 10.10 for the time zone of over 12 hours and up to 18 hours,
- EUR 15.30 for the time zone of over 18 hours.
The stipulated amount of the meal allowance has an impact on the provision of meals to employees as well, and thus the maximum possible employer contribution for meals provided under the Labour Code will also increase to EUR 3.74 (previously EUR 3.52), while the lowest possible value of the meal voucher will increase to EUR 5.10 (previously EUR 4.80).
The financial contribution for meals is the same as the amount the employer contributes to the employees’ meal or to the meal voucher.
The above-mentioned meal allowance prices are regulated by a measure published in the Collection of Laws.
