Employees' meals costs are already 100% covered by the employer; employees have the ability to take their meal at home or employees receive cash allowance for meals.
Employees' meals are already partially subsidised by employer (e.g. access to a cafeteria, cantine, company restaurant, meal vouchers, etc).

3 flexible solutions
A Lunch Card for all needs
With the Lunch Card, Swibeco offers companies attractive alternatives to increase the purchasing power of their employees. The employer can make a fully tax-free contribution to the meal costs of his employees, but can also offer them the option of transferring a fraction of their gross salary to a meal card in order to benefit from the tax advantages. The system is fully digitalised and automated and does not require any additional HR or management resources from the company.
Solution 100% financed by the employer
The employer puts up to CHF 180.- per month per employee to the Lunch Card to contribute to their meal expenses and thus offer them up to CHF 2’160.- additional net purchasing power per year for their lunch breaks.
Solution 100% financed by the employee
The employee converts up to CHF 180.- per month of his gross salary to the Lunch Card. Thanks to this tax optimisation, he can even double his purchasing power compared to the same amount in salary.
Solution co-financed by the employer and employee
If the company makes a partial contribution to the employee's meal costs, the employee may top up this amount up to CHF 180.- per month with a gross salary conversion in order to optimise his purchasing power.
