Learn everything about meal allowances in Finland
In some circumstances a Finnish employer can pay an employee meal allowance. This meal allowance will not be considered part of the employee’s taxable income if all the following conditions apply:
- The employer does not pay the employee a per diem for this day
- The work assignment prevents the employee from having a meal at the place the employee normally eats during his meal break.
- The amount of the meal money is €12 or less for one meal and €24 or less for two meals. The part exceeding the maximum amount will be considered part of the employee’s taxable income.
