New regulations for reimbursement of work trips are proposed

18 elokuu, 2022

During the spring, the government presented proposals for a new set of regulations for how compensation for work trips is calculated. The proposal must now be considered but is expected to enter into force on 1 January 2023.

The proposal means that the current system, which is based on the cost of the journey between home and workplace, is replaced with a tax reduction that is instead based on the distance between the two.

The tax deduction will be SEK 8 per mile, but there are certain parameters to take into account.

Smaller deductions for you in the big city

To be able to deduct the tax, you must have at least 15 kilometres, one way, to work. If you live in or around Stockholm, Gothenburg or Malmö, the distance is twice as far, here 30 kilometers one way applies. Some peripheral municipalities will be counted as large cities and thus covered by the higher limit.

Worth noting is that the first kilometres, i.e. 15 and 30 kilometres, respectively, must be counted out. Deductions can therefore only be made for the kilometers that exceed these limits. The maximum compensation will be 12 miles one way.

Municipalities to be covered by the higher distance limit

  • Stockholm County: Botkyrka, Danderyd, Haninge, Huddinge, Järfälla, Lidingö, Nacka, Salem, Sigtuna, Sollentuna, Solna, Stockholm, Sundbyberg, Södertälje, Tyresö, Täby, Upplands Väsby and Upplands-Bro municipality.

  • Västra Götaland County: Gothenburg, Mölndal and Partille municipality.

  • Skåne County: Burlöv, Lomma, Lund, Malmö and Staffanstorp municipalities.

Less money for electric cars – more for diesel

The tax-free mileage allowance will be increased from the current SEK 18.50 to SEK 25. At the same time, the deduction for fuel when traveling with a concession car is raised from SEK 6.50 and SEK 9.50 respectively to SEK 12 per mile, with the exception of concession cars that are fully or partially powered by electricity, where the deduction is instead reduced to SEK 6 per mile.

More modes of transport are included

One of the news is that even those who take public transport or carpool to work can receive compensation. Those who cycle can also get a tax deduction, but this requires that the distance between home and workplace is greater than the lower distance limit of 3 or 1.5 miles, depending on whether you are in one of the big cities or not.
