Can a Dienstrad be used to claim the distance allowance for journeys to work in the tax return?
Yes! According to §9 para. 1 no. 4 EstG, a distance allowance for journeys between home and place of work can be claimed at 0.30€/km regardless of the means of transport.
Compared to the provision of a company car, if a Dienstrad is taken over, the taxation of the travel distance is compensated with 0.25% of the list price (RRP).
