What allowances do employers commonly offer in Mexico?

Internet and phone allowances are commonly provided by employers in Mexico.

What should my company offer as a work-from-home (WFH) allowance in Mexico?

An allowance of MXN 1,000 is mandatory for teleworkers (employees that work 40% or more of the time from home or from a location different than an employer’s office or plant).

What considerations are there around meal allowances and reimbursements?

Meal allowances can be included in the employment agreements for the amount that you approve. These allowances are taxable. 

Reimbursements are managed in Expensify accordingly with our Mexico Expense Policy. Compliance criteria are listed in our Mexico Expense Policy. All expenses will be reimbursed once approved by you.
