The Tax Administration has confirmed the new lunch benefit values for 2021.

The minimum amount for lunch in 2021 is 6,90 € and the maximum amount is 10,90 €. From this page, you will find all the information you need to know as the lunch values change. Pick your lunch benefit model and you will find further information and instructions on how to act with the changes.

 

If you have the fixed or daily load amount models you need to change the new lunch values before the 2021 loads and your employees need to update their automatic top up-requests in MyEdenred. If you have the recommended load amount in use the change will be updated automatically and you will not have to make any further modifications.

Please note, that if you accepted top-up requests for January 2021 before 15.12.2020 the values balances will be loaded to employees with 2020 values. Accept the load requests and make the value loads after 15.12., so the benefit will be loaded to your employees with the correct 2021 values!

 

If your employee has made the top-up request before 15.12. with the 2020 maximum lunch value of 10,70€ and you wish to load them the 2021 maximum value of 10,90€, you will need to modify the top-up request in the Ticket-On-The-Web -tool or to cancel the request. Then ask the employee to make a new request. Instructions can be found below.
