Higher travel allowance, phasing out BPM exemption for delivery vans
The contents of the Budget Memorandum were no longer a surprise. It is rare that the government budget does not leak out prematurely. Last week laid AD.nl already seized the Budget Memorandum, and listed the main plans of the coalition. This also includes a number of matters relevant to motorists.
Excise duty reduction will remain (for a while)
Government parties VVD, D66, CDA and ChristenUnie have agreed on several measures for motorists. The fuel tax cut, which was created to increase purchasing power, will remain in these difficult times for a while. Initially, the discount on petrol (17.3 cents per litre), diesel (11.1 cents) and LPG (4.1 cents) would be withdrawn again next year. Even though petrol was not as cheap this year as it is at the moment (a different story applies to diesel), the cabinet will give a discount on fuel excise taxes until 1 July 2023.
Down with the ‘road of death’
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management will invest €12.9 billion in improving the road network. One billion euros has been set aside for the maintenance of the Dutch asphalt. Improving the accessibility of residential areas is also an important spearhead. 900 million euros is in the treasury for this. €25 million is being pumped into road safety, in particular to reduce the number of road casualties on N-roads. Spread over several years, a total of €200 million will be spent to make infamous ‘death roads’ safer.
Bpm delivery van
Part of the much-discussed Climate Fund is a reservation of €265 million, which will be spent up to and including 2030 on the greening of passenger transport and travel behaviour. In other words: we should get on our bicycles more often and leave the car behind. In order to make road traffic more sustainable, financial scope has been created to improve the infrastructure for the energy transition. In other words: the construction of more charging stations and charging stations to stimulate the purchase of electric cars.
However, entrepreneurs will have to prepare for a phasing out of the BPM exemption on delivery vans with a combustion engine. The government proposes to completely abolish this exemption from 2025. The way in which bpm is calculated will also change. Until now, this was calculated on the basis of the catalog value of the van, but from 2025 the bpm amount will be determined on the basis of CO2 emissions. With this, the gray import of large American pick-ups with a heavy V8 engine will probably dry up quickly.
Finally, a positive message: if you travel a lot with your private car for work, you can now still charge a tax-free allowance of €0.19 per kilometer. An amount that generally no longer covers the actual costs. Next year, this amount will therefore be increased to €0.21 per kilometer. In 2024, the tax-free allowance will go to €0.22 per kilometer.
