FAQ Lunch Pass

The maximum amount deductible is €10.80. This amount was set by the Grand Ducal Regulation of 23 December 2016. This follows the limit of 1989 (LFr270), increased in 1996 (LFr330) and rounded up in 2002 (€8.18 => €8.40). Sodexo can print Lunch Pass with higher values, but in such case the difference is taxable as salary!

An employee is legally entitled to one Lunch Pass per day of work if he or she has worked for at least four hours during the day. In many companies the allocation of lunch vouchers is in proportion to the number of hours worked as a percentage of full-time.

All businesses with one employee or more can benefit from them irrespective of their size or business sector. All your company’s personnel can have access to lunch vouchers. It’s a motivation solution that’s effective from the first employee and that pleases everyone, at every level of the business.

The Lunch Pass is fully tax-deductible as operating expense. What’s more, it’s exempt from any social charges. It’s also an ideal form of complementary remuneration and a motivational tool.

Legislation

    Lunch vouchers are exempt from social contributions and personal income tax provided the following conditions are met: mandatory employee participation of €2.80 and maximum employer participation of €8.00 (maximum face value of €10.80).
    Lunch vouchers may not be used to replace salary or any other benefit.

  • Terms of use :

    Lunch Pass can be used for a meal or to buy ready-to-eat foodstuffs in an extensive network of restaurants and supermarkets in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

How many Lunch Pass can be distributed per person?

In practice, and with a view to administrative simplification, it is agreed to allocate a flat number of lunch vouchers per month and per person in accordance with the following calculation:
52 weeks x 5 working days
= 260 working days
- 25 days leave
- 10 public holidays
- 5 fixed compensation days off

= 220 Lunch Pass per year
or 18 Lunch Pass per month x 12 months
or 20 Lunch Pass per month x 11 months
