Tax obligations for company cars

As an employer, you can offer your employees a company car. That has lots of benefits both for you and your employees.

Various categories of company cars

Company cars include passenger cars, dual-purpose vehicles, minibuses and light commercial vehicles. A light commercial vehicle is a vehicle that is used to transport goods and which has a maximum gross weight not exceeding 3 500 kg. 

Employees can use that company car for purposes other than business use, in other words for private use. Private use includes free-time and  commuting to and from work.

Lots of financial and tax benefits

Providing a company car has a series of tax and financial consequences for both employer and employee.

  • Reclaiming VAT
  • Tax-deductibility of car and fuel expenses and non-deductible VAT on those expenses
  • CO2 solidarity contribution paid by the employer
  • A taxable fringe benefit for employees and company managers
  • A non-deductible expense for the employer
