Per Diem in Estonia for the year 2024

In Estonia, tax-exempt per diems are only paid to reimburse costs for business travel abroad.

Companies can pay per diems between 22.37 € and 50 € per day. However, the maximum amount of 50 € can only be paid for the first 15 days of travel. After that, the maximum amount is 32 € per day. However, usually companies pay empoyees 32€ per day from the first day.

In Estonia, a full travel day is any travel day that starts before 9 pm. The partial per diem payments are not specified. Per diem will be paid from the day of the return if the day ends after 3 am.

Deductions from per diems

The Estonian tax administration does not specify how the employer-provided meals on the business trip affect the paid per diem paid to the employee. However, a common practice is to make a 15 % deduction for one meal served and a 30 % deduction for two meals to the paid per diem.

Bezala supports per diems in Estonia, including the possible deductions.
