Company car taxation 2023-2031 (BE)
The future is green. That is the reasoning behind the 'Fiscal Policy 2026' bill. The law is a package of measures in favour of electric company cars, charging infrastructure and a better mobility budget.
- Zero emission vehicles ordered before 1 January 2027 remain 100% tax deductible.
- For vehicles ordered after that date, the deductibility will gradually decrease to 67.5% in 2031.
- For Zero Emission Vehicles purchased before 1 July 2023, the monthly CO2 contribution is €20,83. This amount is not indexed and will be reviewed annually.
- ZEVs purchased after 1 July 2023 are subject to the minimum CO2 contribution until 2025. From 2025 onwards, the contribution will gradually increase to €31.15 per month in 2028.
For non-ZEVs there are 3 periods: before 1 July 2023, 1 July 2023 to the end of 2025, from 2026 onwards.
- Non-ZEVs ordered before 1 July 2023 are subject to the current deductibility formula.
- For non-ZEVs purchased between 1 July 2023 and 31 December 2025, the phase-out rule applies. The maximum deductibility will be reduced by 25% each year to reach 0% in 2028.
- Non-ZEVs ordered from 1 January 2026 will no longer be tax deductible.
- Non-ZEVs purchased before 1 July 2023 remain subject to the current rules. The minimum contribution is €20.83 per month (revised annually).
- From 1 July 2023, the CO2 contribution will be multiplied annually by a higher factor. The minimum contribution will be € 31.15 per month in 2028.
- Multiplying by factors will also be applied from 1 January 2026.
For plug-in hybrids, the tax deductibility is still 50% if they are ordered after 1 January 2023. Electricity costs are not included. PHEVs follow the rules of non-ZEVs.
