Discourage companies from offering company car benefits

Discourage companies from offering company car benefits

"...Of the 6 million cars on Belgian roads, about 10 percent are company cars. The country's stratospheric tax rates make it more attractive for employers to reward workers with cars than with cash [...] Even a first job often comes with a car, and most employees also get unlimited fuel cards. The green NGO Transport & Environment last year crowned Belgium as the EU country with the highest company car subsidies..." (Politico, 2021) While Belgium did approve a plan to tackle this, it only comes into terms as of 2026, and it allows for the full tax deductibility of zero-emission cars instead of promoting public transport or cycling. People should be discouraged from using cars daily and offered better alternatives.
