New meal allowances from May 1, 2022

The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and 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.

The amount of the meal allowance will thus be adjusted after more than two years.

On June 07, 04, 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. 116/2022 Coll."  according to which the amounts of meals for business trips change from 1 May 2022:

  • for a time zone of 5 hours to 12 hours of business duration
    at € 6,00
  • for a time zone of 12 hours to 18 hours of business duration
    at € 9,00
  • for time zones over 18 hours of business trip
    at € 13,70

In the context of the new measure, it is:

  • new optimal value of the meal voucher 6,00 €
  • new minimum value of the meal voucher 4,50 €

The employee is entitled to the new amount of the meal allowance from the first day of the calendar month in which it is published in the Collection of Laws of the Slovak Republic, ie from 1 May 2022.

Therefore, don't forget to adjust the nominal value of the meal allowance for your employees today. We have expanded our offer of standard denominations with new values ​​of € 5,50 and € 6.

Compared to 2019, this increase represents an increase of 17,5%. Nevertheless, it does not copy the real costs of employees. Lunch prices increased last year in all regions of Slovakia and continue to rise.
