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 06, 08, it was published in the Collection of Laws "Odiscussion of the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic on the amounts of food allowance no. 281/2022 Coll.", according to which the meal allowance amounts for business trips will change from September 1, 2022:
In the context of the new measure, it is:
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 September 1, 2022.
Therefore, do not forget to adjust the nominal value of the meal allowance for your employees today. From 15.08.2022, we are adjusting the offer of standard nominal values for you to values of €4,50; €4,80; €5,00, €5,10; €5,50; 6 € a €6,40.
Compared to 2019, this increase represents an increase of 25,5%. Nevertheless, it does not copy the real costs of employees. Lunch prices increased last year in all regions of Slovakia and continue to rise.
