The government proposes tax-free electric car charging at work


The government wants to introduce a time-limited tax exemption for charging the car at work. The proposal was announced in next year’s budget and is now out for consultation.

The aim is to promote work trips with rechargeable vehicles and facilitate the transition to a fossil-free vehicle fleet. The tax exemption is proposed to enter into force on 1 July 2023 and apply for three years, writes the Ministry of Finance in a press release.

To take part in the tax exemption, charging must take place at a charging point or an electrical outlet provided by the employer in connection with the workplace. It is proposed to apply to charging class 1 passenger cars, light trucks, motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles.

However, the tax exemption shall not apply to those who paid for their own charging and subsequently request compensation from the employer. Nor shall the tax exemption cover public charging stations or workplaces located in the employee’s residence.

The proposal is estimated to reduce the state’s revenue by approximately SEK 110 million a year.
