The meal ticket will have, starting July 1, 2022, a maximum value of 30 lei, compared to 20,17 lei, as it is now.
This amendment is provided for by Law 187/2022, which amends Law 165/2018 on the granting of value tickets.
The document gives employers the possibility, starting with July 1, 2022, to grant employees meal vouchers in the maximum amount of 30 lei (tickets of a value lower than the ceiling established by the authorities can also be granted).
This maximum value will be valid both in the second half of 2022 and in the first two months of the first half of 2023 (i.e. February and March).
Currently, the maximum value of the meal ticket is 20,17 lei, as established by the Joint order of the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Labor and Social Solidarity no. 366/209/2022.
Employers who will grant meal vouchers in July in the old amount will be able, if they wish, to compensate the difference between the old and the new value by granting additional tickets.
