Introducing Reka Money
as a fringe benefit
Show your employees the advantages of Reka Money
The orientation meeting is a good opportunity to point out the advantages of Reka Money to new employees. Ask the new employee what they like to do in their free time and while on holiday, and point out the many possibilities offered by Reka Money. Many people aren't even aware of how they can use these rewards vouchers. There is certainly something for everyone in the selection. And who doesn't want a larger holiday and leisure budget?
Useful information for downloading and sharing
Regularly inform your employees about the various possibilities for use. Your employees may also have interesting stories to tell about what they have already experienced with Reka Money. Ask for these experiences and share them in house. This way, fringe benefits are transformed into active appreciation and fun. We’ve put together a few helpful PDFs for you. These should help you inform your employees. We also recommend subscribing to our newsletter. There you’ll receive information about new acceptance points and special offers for holidays and leisure activities.
Here’s how to fill out the salary statement when you distribute Reka Money
Benefits of up to CHF 600 do not have to be declared in the salary statement. So for example, if you grant your employees a 20 per cent discount on our rewards vouchers, they can draw a maximum of CHF 3,000 of Reka credit tax-free (see Item III in the instructions for completing the salary statement: you simply need to declare any benefits that exceed CHF 600 per year).
Bonus payments, anniversary or similar gifts are not subject to declaration up to an amount of CHF 500 per event. This is because Reka Money is regarded as a voucher and can be entered as a gift in kind in the salary statement.
Discounts of up to 180 Reka francs per month do not have to be declared. You therefore place a cross in the salary statement in Field G. Contributions that exceed this limit must be added to the salary statement (see the instructions for completing the salary statement: The number of Lunch-Checks that can be distributed is permitted up to the limit set by the AHV/AVS (as of 1.1.2015: CHF 180 per month) by putting a cross in Field G of the salary statement; any contributions that exceed this amount must be added to the salary statement as defined in Item 1 of the salary statement. In the case of canteen meals, see Field G of the salary statement, para. 10).
