The tax calculator was developed by the tax professionals at the Lampertheim publishing company, which specialises in tax and legal publications, and it is updated regularly. The amendment to the non-cash benefit limit for e-cars adopted by the Bundestag with retroactive effect from 1.1.2024 has been incorporated into our tax calculator.

What is the 1% flat-rate tax on company cars used privately?

Every month, 1% of the gross list price for your company car, including all accessories and without any discounts, is deducted from your taxable income. The actual value of second-hand vehicles or vehicles which have already been written off for tax purposes is not taken into account. This is your non-cash benefit.

Tax relief on electric and certain hybrid vehicles (cf. section 3 of the German Electromobility Act, EmoG) was introduced on 1 January 2019 for cars provided or registered to employees for the first time. The non-cash benefit is reduced by half, which also reduces the tax liability for private use of the company car. Also, the taxation rate for all electric models with a gross list price of up to € 70,000 is ionly 0.25%.
