New child allowance
On Monday, a plenary vote is expected to be voted on by a plenary session, including a reform of the status of existing family allowances with a view to rationalizing them and replacing them with a single child allowance is granted, taking into account the number of dependent children, the equivalent family income and the income category of each family.
Families entitled to child benefit are divided according to the equivalent income, into three categories of family income equivalent.
The benefit paid is exempt from any tax, finally, levy or detention in favor of the State or a third party, including the special solidarity levy.
Child benefit is paid taking into account the number of dependent children, equivalent family income and family income equivalent.
Family income equivalent is defined as the total, actual or imputed income from any source of domestic and foreign origin before taxes, after deduction of social security contributions, excluding allowances not counted towards taxable income, of all family members, divided by the equivalence scale.
The equivalence scale is derived from the weighted sum of the family members according to the following weighting:
(a) First parent: Weight 1,
(b) second parent: 1/2,
(c) each dependent child: 1/4 weight.
Specifically, for single parent families, the first dependent child is weighted at 1/2 and each subsequent dependent child is 1/4.
For the purpose of determining entitled families, three categories of family income equivalent are defined as follows:
a) First category: Up to € 6,000,
(b) second category: from EUR 6.001 to EUR 10 000,
(c) third category: from EUR 10.001 to EUR 15 000.
The amount of the allowance, depending on the number of dependent children and the family income equivalent category, is determined as follows:
For the first category:
(a) EUR 70 per month for the first dependent child,
(b) an additional EUR 70 per month for the second dependent child,
(c) an additional EUR 140 per month for the third and each dependent child, other than the third.
For the second category:
(a) EUR 42 per month for the first dependent child,
(b) an additional EUR 42 per month for the second dependent child,
(c) an additional EUR 84 per month for the third and each dependent child, other than the third.
For the third category:
(a) EUR 28 per month for the first dependent child,
(b) an additional EUR 28 per month for the second dependent child,
(c) an additional EUR 56 per month for the third and each dependent child, other than the third.
A prerequisite for the benefit is the submission of an income tax return every year. For the calculation of the family income equivalent category, account shall be taken of the income indicated in the statement for the current financial year.
