| Reading Time: 1 Min

Considering the ever-increasing prices in restaurant facilities, meal allowances for domestic business trips have been increased again, just four months after the last change.

With effect from October 1, 2023, the meal allowance amounts for different time periods have changed as follows:

EUR 7.80 (previously EUR 7.30) for the time zone of 5 hours to 12 hours,

EUR 11.60 (previously EUR 10.90) for the time zone of over 12 hours and up to 18 hours,

EUR 17.40 (previously EUR 16.40) for the time zone of over 18 hours.

In line with these changes, the maximum possible employer’s contribution to the employee’s meals is equally increased to EUR 4.29 (previously EUR 4.02), and the lowest possible value of a meal voucher is increased to EUR 5.85 (previously EUR 5.48).

The financial contribution for meals is the same as the amount the employer contributes to the employees’ meals or meal vouchers.

The abovementioned meal allowance prices are regulated by a measure published in the Collection of Laws.
