The future of employee mobility starts now
In the past, it was common for a company car to be a major incentive for employees to stay with a company long-term or to recruit potential candidates. Since then, sustainability and climate protection concerns have led to a change in the needs for company mobility. Nowadays, employees seek alternatives to the conventional company car.
Do you have any questions?
In principle, all means of transport are allowed. However, there are two models based on tax differences that can be applied to different employees or groups of employees in the company: a) completely tax-free and b) partly tax-free, partly taxed. Public transport and long-distance commuting are tax-free on the part of the legislator, but private long-distance and individual transport, e.g. car sharing, e-scooters, are taxed normally.
No, employees are free to decide which trips they use their budget for - whether private or work-related is irrelevant. Nevertheless, it must be clearly distinguished from a business trip, business trips cannot be charged or accounted for with the mobility budget. Business trips can be settled with Circula Expenses.
Companies are free to set the amount they want to make available to their employees. This way you remain flexible and offer your employees an individual and unique benefit.
All journeys by public transport within Germany are tax-free. The usual taxes are paid on journeys by individual transport (e.g. cab, scooter, car sharing) and long-distance transport (ICE, IC).
Exceptions: If the trip is a commute to work made by long-distance transportation, taxes are not due for that trip.
Yes, the total amount is paid in equal monthly installments until expiration. Example: If you submit an annual pass worth €400, you will receive €33.33 as reimbursement each month.
Yes, employees can submit fuel expenses in the "private transport" category – even for private trips. Note that these costs must be taxed.
