Pay holiday pay or year-end bonuses with the help of a KBC Brussels Cash Budget Credit
- Top up your cash flow
- Spread the cost of holiday pay and year-end bonuses over 12 months
- Benefit from a fixed interest charge that is tax-deductible
Staff holiday pay and year-end bonuses constitute a serious investment for many businesses. That's why 52% of Belgian SMEs take out a KBC Brussels Cash Budget Credit as a way of spreading their payroll costs.
A KBC Brussels Cash Budget Credit lets you pay your staff their holiday pay or end-of-year bonuses on time without straining your cash resources.
By taking out a loan to pay for a year-end bonus (the 'thirteenth month') or holiday pay, you spread your payroll costs over 12 months, while paying low interest charges. What's more, the interest and your loan-related charges are all tax-deductible.

Our employees build up their entitlement to holiday and year-end allowances throughout the year, so why not spread the cost over a full year as well? Financing like this doesn’t cost that much either, letting me run my business carefree without having to set money aside.

How do you calculate holiday pay and year-end bonuses?
In Belgium, there is no set way to calculate the payment of end-of-year bonuses. When calculating a so-called 'thirteenth month', you need to take account of the agreements in your sector, plus the fact that the calculation differs for each employee, i.e. it depends on:
• the gross monthly salary
• the employee's status (white-collar or blue-collar worker)
• the type of remuneration (fixed or variable)
• the number of years' seniority
• the number of dependent children

How do you calculate the required amount?
- White-collar staff: 92% of gross monthly salary (also called double holiday allowance)
- Blue-collar staff: employer’s contribution of 10.27% of wages for the year in which the holidays were earned (at 108%)
