Among other things, these measures aim to achieve Finland's emissions targets.
A recent interim report by the Working Party on Transport Tax Reform suggests that increasing the share of low-emission and especially zero-emission cars in company cars could be increased by reducing their tax burden relative to that of internal combustion cars.
The entry in the government program for company cars could be implemented by temporarily reducing the tax value of the free car benefit and the operating benefit of all-electric cars for 2021–2023 with a flat-rate tax subsidy.
According to the working group, the benefit of on-the-job charging could be temporarily exempted from the tax. In addition, an employer-sponsored home charger could be considered part of the taxable accessories of a company car.
If an employee currently uses electricity paid for by his employer at work to charge his own car or utility car, the value of the benefit is € 30 per month.
