From 2021, employers can also contribute to employee meals in the form of a meal voucher lump sum. This works by crediting the employee’s account each month along with their salary with a certain amount of money to replace meal vouchers or other meal allowance options.

The meal allowance is not an incentive, as it does not work as a tangible benefit. Research shows that within 3 months it usually “merges” with the salary and the employee no longer perceives it as something extra.
