Formerly called “Macron bonus” or “purchasing power bonus”, what is the value sharing bonus and who are the employees concerned?
In 2019, an exceptional bonus exempt from taxes and social security contributions could be paid to employees. In 2022, it was replaced by the value sharing bonus (PPV), details the site of the Ministry of Economy. This bonus allows both employees to obtain a supplement to their remuneration, but also allows employees to benefit advantageous conditions. Can benefit employees “linked to the company by an employment contract, to temporary workers made available to the user company, to public officials from a public establishment and to workers with disabilities linked to an ESAT”.
Since July 1, 2022, the PPV can be paid retroactively in one or more instalments. The annual amounts paid to employees are limited to €3,000 or €6,000 in the case of the signing of a profit-sharing agreement, a payment by a general interest organization or a payment to disabled workers covered by an ESAT. However, this system is optional and nothing obliges employers to put it in place.
