Under new regulations that came into force 22 May 2018, meal cards entities can no longer charge more than 6 percent commission to retail businesses or make any discounts to the employers they deal with. Payments by meal card entities to retail businesses and by employers to meal card entities should be made within 30 days, and no additional payment can be made outside of the agreed commission. Remaining balances on meal cards at the end of the month can be transferred to the next month. In addition, meal card entities are now required to notify the Ministry of Customs and Trade before they start the business.
