Union: ’90 percent of workers do not receive a covering mileage allowance’

The maximum tax-free kilometer allowance will increase from 19 to 21 cents next year. A small improvement, but probably still not enough, given skyrocketing fuel prices. Of the employees who now receive a travel allowance, 90 percent put money on it, according to the trade union CNV.

The maximum tax-free travel allowance has been set at 19 cents per kilometer since 2006. That is no longer enough to cover the actual travel costs, given the rapidly rising prices of petrol and diesel. For many employees, however, 19 cents per kilometer would be a significant improvement, because about 66 percent of them receive less than that, or nothing at all, according to the trade union FNV.

Unions want to increase kilometer allowance to 23 cents

The CNV considers the increase to 21 cents per kilometer too little next year. The union is calling for a rapid increase to 23 cents. The FNV calls on employers to start paying just 19 cents first. Research would show that two out of three employers are willing to pay a higher travel allowance if the government increases the tax-free amount. That is strange, because most are not even at the unloaded maximum yet.
