Ticketscheme

Ticketscheme

The Ticketscheme exempts employees and directors from benefit-in-kind taxation for 1999/2000 and subsequent tax years where an expense has been incurred by an employer for the provision of an annual bus, train, Luas or ferry pass for the employee or director which operate within the State in respect of journeys which begin and end in the State. The exemption does not extend to car parking charges and does not allow the purchase of combined travel pass ticket, which includes car-parking charges.

The Ticketscheme encourages commuters to use public transport helping to reduce traffic congestion and CO2 emissions, through the purchase of tax-free annual tickets. Tax Saver Ticket Scheme enables employees to get a bus, train or ferry ticket Tax, PRSI and USC free, saving up to 52% (average savings are between 28.75%-48.75%) on the cost of their chosen travel ticket. Employers can also make a saving of up to 10.75% on Employer PRSI.
