Do you have any questions?
According to the legislature, non-cash goods and services that are not paid out in the form of a salary, for example, are considered non-cash benefits and, in our case, are purchased from third-party providers. These vouchers are redeemed for goods or services at the partner shop, but cannot be exchanged for cash or salary.
Since January 1st, 2022, vouchers from online marketplaces such as Amazon or Zalando are no longer non-cash benefits. You can find more information about the types of income under § 8 paragraph 1 sentence 3 EStG.
Since December 31, 2021, benefits in kind in the form of digital vouchers of up to €50 per month have been exempt from tax and social insurance fees, cf § 8 paragraph 2 sentence 11 EStG. The vouchers in our app are therefore limited to €50 per month.
No, this is not legally possible, as employees have a maximum of €50 per month in the form of a voucher, cf § 8 paragraph 2 sentence 11 EStG. This means you can receive a maximum of €50 in voucher form at a time.
In some cases, you can redeem multiple voucher codes at once during the checkout process, but this is outside Circula's responsibility.
No, splitting is not possible, as only one voucher can be ordered per month, according to BMF letter.
Yes, non-cash benefits usually have to be shown on the payslip. However, if it can be guaranteed that all non-cash benefits remain within the exemption limit of €50 per month, this can be waived. Circula offers companies the payslip integration.
In this case the voucher expires. It is not possible to order vouchers retrospectively or bundled for several months.
