Cross-border workers from France can work remotely 34 days a year before taxes in Luxembourg. This Wednesday afternoon, the Chamber of Deputies finally adopted a convention that will increase the maximum number of days not only for workers in private companies but also for public sector employees.
Before the new law, cross-border workers living in France could only work remotely for 29 days a year. Now the maximum number of working days that workers can stay at home without paying taxes in France has increased to 34 days.

The Minister of Finance, Yuriko Backes, and the French Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno Le Maire, signed the convention back on November 7, 2022, and this week it was unanimously adopted in the Chamber of Deputies.
The new rules took effect retroactively, that is, as of January 1 of this year. The convention also applies to residents of France who work in public institutions of the Grand Duchy.
