Decree 511/2021 Coll. on travel allowances has already been amended twice this year. In both cases, the decreed price of fuel was changed.
As of 20 August 2022, the price of 98 octane petrol for the purpose of travel reimbursements has been increased to CZK 51.40 per litre.
The price of 95 octane petrol will remain in force as of 14 May 2022 at CZK 44.50/l and diesel at CZK 47.10/l.
For fuels, the Decree price does not have to be used for the calculation of refunds, the actual documented price of fuels can be used, but then we have to prove it for the whole tax period.
The basic refund rate, which is currently CZK 4.70 for passenger cars, has not changed this year and should remain at this level for the time being.
As a result of the amendment to the implementing decree, the domestic meal allowance rates will also change with effect from 20 August 2022:
CZK 120 to CZK 142 if the business trip lasts between 5 and 12 hours,
CZK 181 to CZK 219 if the business trip lasts longer than 12 hours, but no longer than 18 hours,
284 CZK to 340 CZK if the working trip lasts longer than 18 hours
These limits affect the exemption of the meal allowance and the meal voucher. As of 20 August 2022, the meal voucher is tax-exempt up to CZK 99.40 and the “tax-optimal” value of the meal voucher is CZK 180.
