Tax incentives for electromobility
Electromobility is considered to be one of the key elements for sustainable and climate-friendly transport based on renewable energies. On 8.5.2019, the Federal Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium der Finanzen, BMF) published
a draft bill for the proposed “Act to promote further tax incentives for electromobility and to amend other tax regulations”. A short overview of the main contents of the draft bill is set out below. In this connection, there is also a discussion of the provision of (electric) bikes by employers that has been newly regulated with the identical decrees of the highest tax authorities of the federal
states (Länder), from 13.3.2019.
