Luxembourg has reached an agreement with France, Germany and Belgium to maintain the exceptional tax agreement for cross-border workers. It will now be extended to 30 June 2021.

Romain Schneider, Minister of Social Security, announced the news in a press released on Monday.

The special agreement means cross-border employees may continue to work from home while paying tax and maintaining social security as normal in Luxembourg.

In normal times, employees may only work from home for a minimum number of days (29 in France, 24 in Belgium and 19 in Germany) before social security legislation kicks in. This has been suspended as a result of the Covid crisis.
