The Local _ Stockholm _ Company car allowance

Posted by: skallurr 1.Jul.2018, 12:57 PM

Hi,

I have a full time employment in Stockholm and my employer provides a company car for my job role. I can chose to avail a car or a cash allowance. The amount is 5100SEK/month and my base salary is 37200SEK/month.

I do not need a car in Stockholm and I am thinking of getting a cash allowance. How will it impact my taxation? Is it considered as a regular income?

How will it be taxed if I chose to go for a car?
If I select a car, I will definitely use it for personal use together with work. I will not get any compensation for fuel from employer.

If the company clearly mark it as a car allowance then it isn't so much the tax you should be considering but rather the pension contribution the company makes. Allowances are not considered as pensionable income, where-as a company car has a pensionable income equivalent that is taken into consideration when paying into the funds.

In addition to that, a company car (unless only used in work hours) is considered as a work-benefit, and a car allowance is not. This becomes relevant when serving out notice periods, the employer can stop paying an allowance, but cannot remove a work benefit until your last day.

Thank you for the response.

The company do call it as a car allowance. Hopefully it is considered for pensionable income.

Unlikely, but check.

Also doesn't count towards SGI (salary used by F-kassan/A-kassan to calculate benefits)
