Do you receive Wellness Allowance at work? Fantastic! 💪

Wellness allowance is a tax-free benefit that employers can offer their employees, which can be used for a variety of activities that help you stay healthy both physically and mentally ❤️

However, keeping track of the budget during the year can be easier said than done - both for employees and for the finance/HR department.

Therefore, we have created a feature for this in Pleo!


How can I use Pleo for Wellness?

You can use both your Pleo card and make Pocket expenses for Wellness expenses and keep track of your budget; it is linked to your company's Wellness category.

Frequently asked questions about Wellness

Wellness allowance is calculated during the calendar year, 1 January - 31 December. The budget resets on 1 January for all users you have in Pleo. The period cannot be changed.
