The Federal Government reached a compromise on the 2023-2024 wage agreement in late November 2022. Taking into account the exceptional economic context, the Government has set the wage norm at 0% for 2023-2024.
However, enterprises with good or exceptional results in the previous year can grant a one-time premium of EUR 500 or EUR 750 per employee in 2023, known as the “purchasing power premium”. The drafts state that the premium could be awarded once until 31 December 2023. The premium will be subject to a special employer contribution of 16.5%. No contribution will be due by the employee. The purchasing power premium would be tax-free at the tax level. (https://news.belgium.be/fr/prime-pouvoir-dachat-pour-les-travailleurs-salaries-dentreprises-ayant-obtenu-de-bons-resultats-en).
