Employees who work from home on a structural and regular basis for a substantial part of their working time, may receive a flat-rate office allowance from their employer to cover all their office expenses.

The National Social Security Office (NSSO) informs us that this flat-rate office allowance is indexed.

The maximum flat-rate amount allowed by the NSSO as a reimbursement of costs and not subject to social security contributions is:

  • € 137.40/month for the period from 1 April to 31 May 2022;
  • € 140.15/month from 1 June 2022.

The tax authorities also accept these amounts as (non-taxable) reimbursements of expenses in accordance with the provisions of the Circular of 26 February 2021 on employers' compensations for homework.
