We would like to inform you of some changes in the framework of the measures taken by the government in relation to the corona crisis.
TEMPORARY UNEMPLOYMENT CORONA
The temporary unemployment due to force majeure corona has been extended until 30 June 2021. The procedure remains unchanged.
TEMPORARY INCREASE HOMEWORKING ALLOWANCE
Since the corona crisis, people have been working more and more from home. Since March 2020, it is possible to grant a home-working allowance to employees without having to apply for a ruling from the tax authorities for an amount of EUR 129,48.
The maximum amount of this home-working allowance (exempt from taxes and social security contributions) will be increased to EUR 144,31 per month during the second quarter of 2021 (from 1 April to 30 June 2021).
As an employer, there is no obligation to increase the home-working allowance as it is a maximum amount.
