New meal allowance amounts from January 1, 2023

The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and the Family of the Slovak Republic proposes an increase in the value of meals on the basis of an increase in the prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages in restaurant catering.

After four months, the value of the meal allowance changes again.

On June 07, 12, it was published in the Collection of Laws "Measure of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic on the amounts of meal allowance No. 432/2022 Coll." according to which the meal allowance amounts for business trips are changing from January 1, 2023:

  • for a time zone of 5 hours to 12 hours of business trip to € 6,80
  • for a time zone of 12 hours to 18 hours of business trip to € 10,10
  • for time zones over 18 hours of business trip to € 15,30

In the context of the new measure, it is:

  • new optimal value of the meal voucher €6,80
  • new minimum value of the meal voucher €5,10

The employee is entitled to the new amount of meal allowance from the first day of the calendar month in which it is published in the Collection of Laws of the Slovak Republic, i.e. from January 1, 2023.

Therefore, do not forget to adjust the nominal value of the meal allowance for your employees today.

Nevertheless, this increase still does not reflect the real costs of employees. Lunch prices are constantly increasing in all regions of Slovakia.
