You can estimate the amount of adjusted daily allowance with our daily allowance calculator.
As a general rule we calculate the amount of adjusted daily allowance as follows:
take the salary
deduct the protection (€ 300/month or € 279/four weeks)
divide the result by two
divide the result by 21,5
deduct the result from full daily allowance
Salary € 1 300, full daily allowance € 67,72, application period comprises of 20 compensated days, tax withholding percentage 20%.
1 300,00 €
1 300,00 € - 300,00 € = 1 000,00 €
1 000,00 € / 2 = 500,00 €
500,00 € / 21,5 p = 23,26 € /p
67,72 €/p - 23,26 €/p = 44,46 €/p
44,46 €/p x 20 p = 889,20 €
889,20 € x (1 – 0,20) = 711,36 €
In addition to the general rule, adjusted daily allowance also has maximum and minimum amounts.
The maximum amount depends on the salary used as the basis for your earnings-related daily allowance. Adjusted daily allowance including child increase plus income cannot be higher than your base salary. If your income is higher than your base salary, no daily allowance will be paid.
The amount of earnings-related daily allowance is nevertheless at least the same as basic daily allowance and possible child increase would be after the effect of income from work. The amount of basic daily allowance for 2019 is 32,40 €.
