Is the mobility budget calculated per day, month or annually?

Your mobility budget is calculated on an annual basis.

As explained in Pillar 3, the remainder of your budget at the end of the year will be subject to the special 38.07% contribution. The balance will be returned to you.

You will therefore be required to check with your employer that your total annual budget does not exceed what you actually spend.

Some solutions such as MyMove allow the employee to keep an eye on the budget spent while enabling the employer to keep track of its employees’ total expenses in terms of mobility budget.

If you do not stay a full calendar year with your employer, your budget will be prorated based on the number of months actually worked.

What if I spend more than the amount of my mobility budget?

Theoretically, both your employer and you must have a view on your mobility budget.

However, in case you go over your budget limit, you will be required to refund the difference within 30 days of notification from your employer.

The calculation of the amounts to be reimbursed must be provided by your employer

Can my mobility budget increase year over year, like my salary?

On the other hand, a promotion or downgrade can increase or decrease your mobility budget if it brings you into a new category of company car.
