Good news for employees and employers who want to finance their meals at work. From March 1, the Ministry for the Family has radically raised the limit on employers’ subsidies for employee meals by its decree – now up to PLN 300 from this support is exempted from ZUS contributions; Previously, only 190 zlotys were contributed. As a result, employers will be more willing to use meal subsidies as a form of employee benefit. As calculated by experts, the annual savings resulting from this change of company and employee due to the exemption from contributions amount to 1426.51 PLN. All this means that subsidizing PLN 300 for employee meals may be a hit this year among employee benefits.
