The Flemish Government is planning a number of new measures that will come into force in the new year. This is a brief preview of the planned changes.
The following measures will come into force in the course of 2023:
Planned entry into force
Decree of 12 January 2022 on individual customisation
1 July 2023
Qualifying work-based learning/apprenticeship premium
Decree of 21 December 2022 on the premium for qualifying work-based learning for companies and the premium for work-linked training for students
1 September 2023
Target group reduction for persons without recent, sustained work experience
Draft decree on target group reduction for persons without recent, sustained work experience
1 October 2023
In order to lower barriers to employment for persons with disabilities and ensure the appropriate support and conditions to enable them to do their work, the government will be offering employers and the self-employed a financial incentive (salary premium or support premium) and/or coaching premium in compensation for the additional costs associated with such employment.
The VOP (Flemish support premium), SINE (social integration economy) and LDE (local services economy) measures and departments for customised integration will be abolished and incorporated into the individual customisation programme.
Applications for the salary premium or coaching premium may be submitted to the Department of Work and Social Economy as from 1 July 2023.

There will be a qualifying work-based learning premium for companies (employers and the self-employed). This premium encourages companies to provide a high-quality work-based learning experience with a strong on-the-job component within the context of qualifying training.
There will also be an apprenticeship premium for work-linked training. This premium aims to encourage apprentices to successfully complete their work-linked training with a strong on-the-job component.
Finally, this decree will abolish existing incentives relating to work-based learning, more specifically the start and internship bonuses, mentoring discount and target group reductions for students in work-linked training programmes and for young people working part-time and receiving part-time vocational training.
The implementation is scheduled to begin on 1 September 2023.
New target group reduction as from 1 October 2023 for persons without recent, sustained work experience
G1 (EUR 1,000 per quarter) reduction for first quarter of employment + 3 subsequent quarters

Target group reduction for older employees
59 years of age on last day of quarter - EUR 600 (G4)

61 years of age on last day of quarter - EUR 600 (G4)
62 years of age on last day of quarter - EUR 600 (G4)
*When adapting the age limit to qualify for the target group reduction for existing employees, certain employees will already have reached this age and their employer may already be applying the higher target group reduction amount. Thanks to these transitional measures, such employees and their employers may continue to benefit from the higher amount.
