This year, several interventions by the Meloni government lead to possible changes in the pay slip of employees . From the Irpef reform to the cutting of the tax wedge, up to more specific measures such as the cut in contributions for mothers with two or more children, or the tax relief for overtime and night work in the tourism and catering sector. Here are the main measures, what effects they will have and how long they will last.

Cutting the tax wedge and 2024 Irpef reform, what changes

The tax wedge cut has been confirmed for the whole of 2024, while it is not yet certain whether it will remain in force for next year. The cut involves a lowering of the contributions to be paid in the pay slip, and therefore leads to a higher net salary, on average of 100 euros each: the reduction is seven points for those with a gross income of up to 25 thousand euros per year , and six points for those who earn between 25 thousand and 35 thousand euros. Since this is a measure that has already been in place since July last year, the 14 million employees affected by the cut will not see a change in their net salary.

The Irpef reform has reduced the rates to three: 23% is paid up to 28 thousand euros, 35% between 28 thousand and 50 thousand euros and finally 43% above 50 thousand euros of income. Compared to last year, this leads to a saving of 2% for those who earn more than 15 thousand euros a year. Concretely, the greatest advantages are for those who earn between 28 thousand and 50 thousand euros, who will save 260 euros per year in Irpef. Even in this case, however, this is a temporary measure, in force only for this year.

How much are the deductions for working mothers and new parental leave worth?

There are some measures aimed exclusively at parents. For example, the cut in contributions for employed women with two or more children, which excludes domestic workers, should come into force from February. The audience, according to estimates published by Sole 24 Ore, is around 681 thousand beneficiaries. The total cut in contributions is worth up to a maximum of 3 thousand euros per year, and will last until the youngest child turns ten. The measure, however, is only financed for this year, so it is not certain that those who meet the requirements from 2025 onwards will be able to obtain it.

The other intervention for parents is that of parental leave : the second optional month will be paid at 80%, as will the first. Only in 2024, however. In 2025 the second month will drop to 60%, while the first will remain at 80%. All other months, however, will have an allowance equal to 30%, as is already the case today.

The other salary measures in the envelope

A series of innovations will only bring benefits if the employers or the company decide to 'grant' them, or if they are already foreseen in the contract. This is the case of collective productivity bonuses: these will have taxation reduced to 5% for this year (like last), without confirmation for the next. Fringe benefits , or company benefits, will have a raised ceiling of 2 thousand euros per year for employees with fiscally dependent children, and one thousand euros per year for these employees who have no dependent children.

The last two innovations concern more specific audiences. First of all, there will be a deduction equal to 120% of the cost of labor for those employers who hire permanent employees, while the South decontribution has been extended until 30 June 2024. Finally, workers in the tourism, hospitality, spa and catering and administration will be able to have a tax exemption for night work and overtime on holidays: as happened last summer, and until June 2024, those who work night or overtime shifts will be able to receive a supplementary treatment, completely tax-free, which will be worth 15% of gross salary.
