Vertegenwoordiging Duits Minimumloon (MILOG)

icoon-duitsland-minim-loon.jpgVertegenwoordiging Duits minimumloon (MiLoG) in Duitsland

Vanaf 01/01/2015 moeten buitenlandse vervoerders van / naar / door Duitsland en buitenlandse vervoerders die door Duitsland rijden aan de wet MiLoG (Duitse minimumloon-wet) voldoen.

Heeft u wagens >7,5 ton die naar / door Duitsland rijden en chauffeurs in loondienst dan heeft u Duitse vertegenwoordiging nodig. Wij kunnen dit voor u regelen.


Wat zijn de kosten?
  • GEEN registratie kosten
  • U betaalt een jaarlijks bedrag* afhankelijk van het aantal certificaten dat u nodig heeft (2 certificaten per jaar per chauffeur)
  • Het vaste** jaarlijkse bedrag heeft 5 niveaus:
    • 1-10 certificaten: € 75 per jaar
    • 11-25 certificaten: € 150 per jaar
    • 26-50 certificaten: € 250 per jaar
    • 51-100 certificaten: € 350 per jaar
    • 100+ certificaten: € 500 per jaar

ad * : Een eerste samenwerking wordt aangegaan voor minimaal 1 jaar; prijzen zijn exclusief BTW.
ad **: Een certificaat is een half jaar geldig volgens de Duitse wet, dus per chauffeur zijn er per jaar 2 nodig. Wanneer het aantal certificaten waarvoor het vaste jaarbedrag betaald is, overschreden wordt, komt er een aanpassingsfactuur. Bijvoorbeeld: u schrijft zich in voor maximaal 10 chauffeurs, maar gedurende het jaar blijken er 14 certificaten nodig. Zodra de 11de bestuurder aangemeld wordt, wordt er een een aanpassingsfactuur voor 75 euro verstuurd.

Het in Duitsland algemeen verplichte minimumloon is:
1 januari 2019 tot en met 31 december 2019: € 9,19 bruto per uur
1 januari 2020 tot en met 31 december 2020: € 9,35 bruto per uur

How does it work?
The “Operational scheduling” notification must be sent to the German Customs prior to the beginning of transports in Germany and it can cover up to 6 months. The period of the operational scheduling must be calculated according to specific jobs or assignments that are predictable and can be planned with relative certainty. A generalized notification indicating "several journeys over a period of six months" would therefore not be compliant.
The information to be given in the operational schedules:

  • details about the start and expected end of the scheduled period of deployment,
  • the surnames, first names, and dates of birth of all workers the employer expects to deploy in Germany during the notified period of scheduling,
  • the scheduled period of the workers’ deployment in Germany, and the number of individual postings/deployments of each worker within this period of scheduling. One deployment is the period of time between the driver crossing the border into and out of Germany and it can be simply estimated, with no need to amend the declaration in case posting are more or less than those declared.
  • the address where the mandatory documentation will be kept available for inspection. It can be outside Germany, i.e. in the employer headquarters.

What information should you send?
Beside the drivers and certificates information to be provided via Move Expert website, the Company should inform Move Expert if it is already registered on www.meldeportal-mindestlohn.de website. If
yes, you should give Move Expert the permission to connect and send declarations on your behalf. If not, we will create your account and send declarations to the German customs on your behalf.

In which cases should you modify an operational scheduling previously sent?
Notifications of change or derogation from the original scheduling are not necessary where the operational scheduling complies with all relevant requirements. If, for example, an employer gives
notification for the period from 1 January to 31 March because he has secured a number of assignments until that date and he states that five workers are being deployed in Germany for that
period, but finally deploys an additional worker not originally notified to customs, a notification of change would not be necessary.

Obligations for the posting companies:
  • Store any document attesting salary, working insurance and posting information for the whole duration of the work or services and for the following 2 years. The translation into German will have to be provided only on demand from the German authority. Documents officially requested to be stored are:
    • the employment contract and/or documents which set out the relevant terms of the employment relationship;
    • time sheets: employers are required to record the beginning, end and aggregate hours of their workers’ daily assignments. The records shall be created not later than the seventh calendar day following that on which the relevant work was performed, and shall be retained for a minimum period of two years from the date on which the recording obligation arose. There is no requirement as to the form of the working time records; they may be kept either as electronic or as paper files. The data on file need only show the beginning, end, and total hours of any particular day’s work, but not the exact time or length of the breaks.
    • pay slips,
    • proof of payment of wages,
    • A1 form.   
  • The company is responsible of complying with German working and salary conditions for the drivers posted/doing transport operations in Germany. With effect from 1 January 2019, the minimum gross wage in Germany is set at 9.19 euros per hour.

The German MILOG Minimum Wage Act (Mindestlohngesetz – MiLoG) entered into force on 1st January 2015 and applies to foreign carriers carrying out transport, cabotage and/or secondment operations in Germany. According to Article 16, foreign companies must send a prior declaration attesting to the deployment of drivers in Germany before the start of the operation and provide posted employees with the same working conditions and remuneration as German workers. It is not mandatory to appoint a representative in Germany.
