Companies with employees who have children in day-care centers can pay them this expense (day-care check) and impute it to them as remuneration in kind, in such a way that both the employee and the company will obtain benefits, especially the employee who will be able to see an increase in his net monthly salary.

This option allows an employee to ask the company to pay directly the costs of the childcare bills, deducting the corresponding monetary remuneration from the employee’s paycheck. In this case, the amounts paid directly by the companies to the daycare centers will be exempt from income tax.

If it is the company that pays the childcare expenses directly, such remuneration in kind will be exempt from personal income tax. Therefore, if a part of the monetary remuneration is replaced by this salary in kind, the employee will no longer pay income tax on a part of his or her salary, and in this way, his or her net salary will increase monthly.
