The prefinanced CESU is a special payment voucher issued by one of the five structures authorised by the DGE (General Directorate of Enterprises).
It is available in two formats: paper or electronic.
Prefinanced CESU vouchers can be used to pay for personal services provided by anyone working in the home of a private employer (the beneficiary) or, in the case of childcare, outside the home. The funder may choose to specify the category or categories of services concerned.
Prefinanced CESU vouchers are "dated". They are dated for one calendar year (from January to December) and remain valid until 31 January of the following year. The validity date is printed on the back of each CESU.
They can be reimbursed by CRCESU to the affiliated worker (employee, agency or service provider) until the last day of the following February, as evidenced by the postmark or bank stamp.
Only CRCESU is authorised to reimburse prefinanced CESU.
