Smart working bonus of 516 euros to buy chairs and desks for those who work from home. This is one of the novelties of the Support Decree, which included the extension for the year 2021 of the increase to € 516.46 of the «fringe benefits»: a form of non-cash remuneration granted by companies to employees. The voucher can be used for the purchase of desks, chairs, lamps and all that is used to work from home.
The measure wants to facilitate remote work and using it is very simple. In the case of desks and chairs, the company has two options: purchase them directly by delivering them to the employees and then deducting the expenses incurred or use welfare platforms to distribute vouchers to employees who can then spend them in affiliated shops.
The extension of the contribution will also serve to relaunch the furniture sector, one of the most affected due to the lockdown. The latest Censis Eudaimon survey indicates that 87.2% of the companies interviewed believe the bonus is useful for restarting after Covid.
