Prices fluctuate at the pump for a long time. For people who need their cars to work without a fuel card — think home nurses, cleaning aides or people with commercial jobs — these increases have a serious impact on purchasing power, Finance Minister Vincent van Bettieghem said after a cabinet meeting. The price hike has hit them twice. He noted that last year the price was 1.5 euros per liter. Now that’s 2.4 euros per liter.

That’s why the government is taking three measures to cushion the shock. It had allocated 30 million euros for this. This is how you run Indexing of fixed rate expense allowance For shifts through already. This usually happens in July. Indexing will also apply Retroactively Until March. In addition to indexing Now four times a year is happening. This would help offset price increases more quickly.

There is also an intention to encourage employers to get as close as possible to, or even exceed, the maximum compensation, as explained by Minister of Labor Pierre-Yves Dermann (PS). The government provides a tax incentive that increases as compensation approaches this maximum. If the employer gives 20 cents per kilometer today and raises it to the maximum (40 cents), this means an additional 6 euros for the employee for two 15-kilometer trips, Van Peteghem calculates.
