Subsistence Increase

    So since I’ve started with the company in 2016 we have been receiving a subsistence payment of €33.61 untaxed per day we are working away from our usual base. We aren’t civil servants but we are getting them nonetheless. From reading online I believe this increased to €36.97. We got no increase then. On the 1st of December 2022, this payment increased again to €39.08, again no increase on our side. Is it worth emailing HR and seeing if we’re owed a backpayment?

    The civil service limit changing just changes the amount you can get untaxed; rather than requiring everyone else to change to it - so I wouldn't expect a backpayment or even necessarily expect an increase. Worth asking for the increase at least, from an inflationary perspective anyway.
