Rights that can be transferred include:
- RTT hours (time off in lieu);
- days specified in collective agreements;
- paid leaves beyond the 4th week.
Amounts transferred are exempt from income tax and some social security payroll taxes, for up to 10 days per year.
Those assets are then locked up until your retirement or the legal age of retirement (except if unlocked early, including buying a home).
