The multiple-child bonus of EUR 20 per month is due for the third child and further children for whom family allowance is granted.
However, the family income subject to taxation must not exceed a certain ceiling which is EUR 55,000 per calendar year.
Calculations are based on the income for the year prior to the year in which the multiple-child bonus is to be granted. If the application for the multiple-child bonus is for the year 2018, the basis for calculations is the income of 2017, which must not exceed a ceiling of EUR 55,000.
The bonus must be claimed separately for each calendar year when the salary/income tax return is filed. If you have no taxable income, you may apply to the Tax Office for direct payment of the multiple-child bonus by filing form E4.
