Commuting benefit

Commuting benefit

Commuting benefit – what it is all about?

The employer can support employees by offering  tax relieved commuter benefit on a modern card.

Commuter benefit is meant for commuting between home and work but it can be used for leisure time commuting as well.

Commuter benefit up to €300 and between €751-3400 is tax free for employees. But if your employer gives commuter benefit for €301-750, then it is taxable with your own income tax per cent.

By using commuter benefit offered by your employer, you are able to add exercise to your everyday life, which improves your well-being and  coping with work load – people using public transportation take about  2000 steps more than people using their own cars!
