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 will be indexed.

The maximum flat-rate amount allowed by the NSSO as a reimbursement of costs and not subject to social security contributions will amount to € 145.81/month from 1 December 2022. Currently, the flat rate amount is € 142,95/month.

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