Fuel card without company car
When thinking of a fuel card you may immediately think a company car. Yet it does not necessarily have to be part of it. If you only want to make a fuel card available to your employees, you can do that perfectly. In that case you must make sure that your employees always register their trips correctly, because the tax authorities make a distinction between professional and private trips and commuter traffic. On our blog we explain the advantages and disadvantages of a fuel card without a company car, and we discuss the ‘benefit in kind”.
MAES fuel card for the self-employed
The MAES fuel card is not only the perfect partner for large companies. Do you work as a self-employed secondary profession, do you have a limited liability company or a venture? Regardless of your specific situation, the MAES fuel card for the self-employed provides you with lots of benefits. You and / or your employees always refuel at a competitive price at more than 1,500 filling stations. The MAES fuel card for the self-employed is also easy to manage online. Ready for administrative simplification, financial benefit and time savings? Request your fuel card immediately, free of charge and without any obligations.
