Exemption from payroll tax

Salaries paid by any company, cooperative, or association, regardless of the date of its creation, to an employee on the occasion of his or her first recruitment are exempt from income tax for the first 36 months following said recruitment, under some conditions.

The Finance Act 2022 has extended until the 31 December 2022 the measure instituting the exemption for 36 months, in favour of the first permanent contracts concluded by employees up to 35 years old.
