In order to calculate the non-taxable daily allowance for foreign business trips, fixed salary of an employee shall be compared with the minimum monthly salary or the minimum hourly salary multiplied by a coefficient. Starting 1 January 2020 this coefficient increases from 1.3 to 1.65.

Please be reminded, that from 1 January 2020 the minimum monthly salary increases to EUR 607 and the minimum hourly salary to EUR 3.72.
