Who is eligible for a mileage allowance?

When an employee uses their personal car to travel for professional purposes, the employer can reimburse them for the costs incurred.

What is the new mileage allowance for 2020?

  • From July 1, 2020, until June 30, 2021, the new mileage allowance equals € 0,3532 per kilometer.
  • This is a slight decrease compared to € 0,3653 per kilometer from July 1, 2019, until June 30, 2020.

Are there any conditions for receiving the mileage allowance?

  • The max number of kilometers per year is 24.000 kilometers. If an employee goes over this number of kilometers, they must provide proof.
  • Employers can reimburse the driven kilometers at a lower rate without any discussion. A higher reimbursement is also possible, but the burden of proof lies with the employer and the employee. They should be able to prove that the allowance granted is in line with the actual cost price.
