Taxation of the lunch benefit

Edenred Lounari is a 25% tax-free benefit that is loaded to employees' accounts on a monthly basis. The amount to be loaded varies according to the number of monthly working days of each employee (on average 21 working days/month). The lunch benefit is work day-specific and intended to be used once a day. The Tax Administration determines the daily minimum and maximum payment limits for the benefit

The lunch benefit can be offered to employees as a fringe benefit (as a favorable salary increase) or as a lunch deduction (charged from the employee's salary).
