To make the work less expensive: the proposals of Sylvain Maillard

This should be one of the exit points from the crisis of the "yellow vests". The government is working on a new assistance to facilitate the journeys of the assets from their homes to their place of work. The outline of this boost remains to be defined. Thursday, a meeting should take place at the ministry of Labour: in front of the ministers Muriel Pénicaud (Labour), Elizabeth Terminal (Transport) and Jacqueline Gourault (territorial Cohesion), the unions will argue their proposals.

In the meantime, Syvain Maillard, member of LREM of Paris, has presented his side this Tuesday in the majority group in its tracks for ease of travel professionals. "We no longer need to pay to go to work", says the elected and business leader, who welcomes the fact that "all the world ahead of its proposals". "A synthesis will then be carried out and the government will decide," he said.

Concretely, Sylvain Maillard suggests that companies who wish to fully reimburse the subscription of public transportation by their employees receive a tax exemption and the abolition of social charges integrals. The current regime provides that employers reimburse 50 % of the ticket of their employees, these partial repayments are exempt from tax on the income.

50 km refunded all the days

The elected, also wants to tackle the cost of the travel professional of the households living in rural areas and in small towns. The government has already taken a step in this direction by reviewing the schedule mileage, which allows to estimate the travel costs deductible from its taxable income. The scale has been increased for small displacements.

Sylvain Maillard wants to go a step further. It is proposed to apply this system to schedule the trips of daily life to enable employers who wish to reimburse directly the journeys of their employees. These rebates would be exempt from social charges and income tax, within the limit of 25 km (50 km round-trip) between the residence and the place of work of the employee.

today, when the employee must use his personal vehicle for his commute from home to work, the employer has the possibility to reimburse costs of fuel, exempt from social charges and income tax, within the limit of 200 euros per month. The system proposed by the mla would be considerably more generous.
