Macron bonus: benefit extended for 2021

Published on : 30/09/2021 30 September Sep 09 2021

The exceptional purchasing power bonus, better known as the "Macron bonus", is extended in 2021. After a final adoption by the Parliament, this bonus has been extended by the rectifying finance law.

The objective of this bonus is to allow employers to pay their employees earning less than three times the national minimum wage (SMIC) a bonus exempt from tax and social contributions, up to a limit of 1,000 euros. The limit is raised to 2,000 euros in the event of the signing of a profit-sharing agreement or for workers in the second line if revaluation measures are undertaken. 

To be eligible for social and tax exemptions, the bonus must meet several conditions:

- The bonus must benefit employees linked to the company by an employment contract, temporary workers made available to the company or public employees of a public industrial and commercial establishment (EPIC) or a public administrative establishment (EPA) on the date of its payment.

- The bonus also benefits employees whose remuneration is less than 3 times the amount of the Smic (over the 12 months preceding its payment).

- It is paid between June 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022.

- It cannot replace an increase in remuneration or a bonus provided for by a wage agreement, the employment contract or a customary practice in force in the company or public establishment.

- The bonus is capped at €1,000 in companies that have not signed a profit-sharing agreement.

- The bonus is capped at €2,000 in companies that have signed a profit-sharing agreement or for second-line workers if measures to upgrade their jobs are undertaken.

This financial boost from the State will be paid until the beginning of 2022 and can now be applied to companies with less than 50 employees without conditions.
