As of 1 January 2021, following amounts will apply:

Basic amounts Amounts applicable for 2020 Amounts applicable as of 1 January 2021
EUR 16.100 EUR 35.761 EUR 36.201

Currently these remuneration thresholds are relevant to check the validity of a non-competition clause, an arbitration clause and an education clause.
