Is my employer’s contribution towards my De Lijn ticket subject to a maximum?

Your employer can pay up to 100% of the cost of public transport.

The contribution is also completely exempt from tax (withholding tax), even if it exceeds the statutory minimum.

Collective Labour Agreement 19/9 of 23 April  has a supplementary effect. This means that the industry in which you work may set different rules for your employer’s contribution. But don’t worry, it can never be less than the mandatory 71.8%.

In fact, there are many industries that stipulate more generous contributions. For example:

  • Joint Committee 220 for the food industry;
  • Joint Committee 322 for temporary work;

Do therefore ask your employer what contribution it pays (on top of the mandatory 71.8%). Again, there are a lot of industries that contribute the full 100%.
