The procedure of taxation of
From January 1, 2008, the fixed-rate fringe benefit of 256 euros per month was substituted with a rate that is based on the capacity of the passenger vehicle motor (with price per kW).
What exactly changed?
- fringe benefit rate of a new passenger car is 1.96 euros/kW per month
- with passenger cars over 5 years old 1.47 euros/kW per month
- with hybrid passenger cars, it is based on the maximum capacity (kW) of the internal combustion engine as stated in the traffic register of Road Administration or in the technical passport
- with electric and gas vehicles, it is also based on the capacity (kW) of the motor as stated in the traffic register of Road Administration or in the technical passport
- currently, the fringe benefit rate applicable to vans (N1 category vehicle), which the employer allows to use for private trips, can also be calculated on the basis of kW
Taxation of company cars
The taxation procedure applies to vehicles used for both work and private trips.
Fringe benefits tax is not paid if 100% of the trips with the vehicle are work-related!
The best way to prove the purpose of a trip is to use the electronic Navirec GPS driving log book
How is the fringe benefit tax calculated?
The fringe benefit tax of a new car is calculated, multiplying the capacity of the vehicle (kW) with 1.96 euros, adding to it the income tax of special occasions and social tax of fringe benefit.
For example, in case of a 2018 Toyota Avensis:
108 kW x 1.96 eur = 211.68 eur
211.68 eur x 0.25 = 52.92 eur
(211.68 eur + 52.92 eur) x 0.33 = 87.32 eur
Taxes in total:
52.92 + 87.32 = 140.24 eur per month
(16 828 eur per year)
