Driver Reimbursement

Driver reimbursement is the most costly, least efficient and inequitable way to obtain business transportation. It offers the least amount of control by the employer over the operating costs, safety, the model, value, condition or style of an employee's vehicle. Moreover, reimbursement requires costly record keeping to substantiate and process driver claims.


  • No company cash outlay
  • No balance sheet effect
  • Use of future dollars


  • Purchasing, maintenance and selling are done by employee
  • No tracking of drivers personal use of company vehicle
  • No vehicle cost related to terminated/transferred employees


  • Reimbursement puts financial pressure on employee:
    • Driver must buy vehicle at retail price
    • Driver must borrow at higher individual rates
    • 100% sales tax impact on purchase price
  • Driver pays retail price for maintenance, repairs, parts, tires, etc
  • Business usage increases drivers insurance premium
  • Drivers generally not aware of most economical vehicle, resulting in higher fuel/operating costs
  • Personal vehicle tends to be kept longer, thus increasing operating costs and down time
  • Tax reform has reduced tax benefits of ownership:
    • Depreciation benefits have been curtailed
    • No deduction for employees business expense unless they exceed 2% of adjusted gross income
    • No state sales tax deduction on new car


  • Burden of handling multiple expense and mileage reports
  • No control over age, type, and image of employees vehicles
  • No assurance of safety/reliability of employee owned cars
  • Employer must monitor insurance coverage and see that company is named the additional insured.
  • Utility requirements of vehicle likely to be inadequate
  • Research and tracking required to ensure fair compensation for different mileage's, territories, and geographic locations.
  • Loss of recruitment advantage/employee retention due to absence of a company car
  • Less control over downtime when company does not oversee maintenance
  • Reimbursement programs are often hard to explain to drivers; are perceived as unfair and cause dissatisfaction
