First things first; why should I give my employees a kilometer allowance? 🤔

  • Km allowances are tax-free

Half of the Belgian employees already receive an allowance for their commute. Employees pay 0 taxes on this, as long as you stay within the maximum amounts (indicated in Mbrella).

  • No hassle to register kilometers

Bye-bye Excel files. Your employees can now register their commuting trips directly in Mbrella. It doesn't get much more user-friendly than this.

  • Reimburse real distances instead of forfeits

By reimbursing employees per km, you promote fairness and sustainability. If you bike more to work, you get more money. Simple.

  • Comply with legal corporate transportation plans

Companies in the Brussels-Capital Region with more than 100 employees are obliged to report how their employees commute to work. Mbrella now tracks this for you.

How does it work? 🗓️

  • Log your commute in 1 click

Select the days you came to work and your mode of transport. Everything else is automatically pre-filled. Directly see the amount you will get reimbursed.

  • Automatically repeat commutes

Going to the office on the same days? Plan your recurring commute, so you don't have to log every commuting trip individually. Big time saver for employees.

  • Integrated with your payroll

Allowances are automatically created for every commuting trip. They'll be added to your payroll, with the right pay codes and amounts.

Sounds too good to be true? 📹
