Crackdown on private use of company cars

Tax inspectors are to use cars fitted with special scanners in an effort to track down people who use their company cars for private business without paying the proper tax.

Festivals, out-of-town shopping centres and other popular destinations will be targeted. The tax office hopes to raise several hundred thousand euros in extra tax.
People who drive over 500 kms a year for private purposes in their company car have to pay income tax on a fifth of the car’s catalogue price.
