To determine what share of your electricity bill can be attributed to the charging of your electric or plug-in hybrid company vehicle, we look at the charging station’s consumption figures (in kWh). These are recorded by a calibrated meter installed within the unit (the ‘consumption’). Only consumption recorded while charging with the public charge card will be reimbursed.
Situation 1: MobilityPlus reimburses the charging sessions
When your employer decides that MobilityPlus will take care of the reimbursement, we apply the CREG rate for Belgian companies in most cases. This rate is the national average electricity price all-in. For Dutch companies, we use the rates of the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek.
You can view these rates on the CREG website. At the top of the page, click "Download the MM/YYYY dashboard". Then go to page 3. On the 'Average commercial electricity price (all-in)' line in column 'BE' for the month in question, you will find the rate applied.
This rate is updated monthly.
MobilityPlus will apply the latest available CREG rate (i.e. at the start of each month). In practice, this means that charging sessions for the month of November will be reimbursed at the CREG rate for October, for example, while charging sessions for the month of December will be reimbursed at the rate for November, and so on.
If the CREG tariff for the previous month would not yet have been published at the time of calculation, we use the tariff of the previous month.
Every month, you will receive an overview of these registered charging sessions and their respective cost by email. This will let you know the amount that will be reimbursed.
MobilityPlus will pay your reimbursement into your personal account on a monthly basis. During your audit, MobilityPlus will request your bank details. For reasons of privacy, your employer will not play any part in these transactions. This means you must submit your payment details to MobilityPlus directly.
We are not liable for any deviations from this average rate (above or below the average).
Exception: in some situations the employer decides to apply a fixed reimbursement per kWh.
Reimbursements and expense reports are sent between the 2nd and 6th day of each month, with the latter document tracking the charging sessions for the previous month. When a charging station was temporarily offline / faulty, these sessions are included in the following month's document.
Your employer has until the 25th of the same month in which the expense report was sent to pay us. If we receive the funds on the 25th, you will be paid on the 28th of that same month.
If the employer does not pay on time, employee reimbursements will be postponed by a day for each day over the said date. For example, if an employer submits the required payment on the 10th of the following month, you will be reimbursed on around the 12th.
Situation 2: Your employer is responsible for reimbursing the charging sessions
If your employer is responsible for reimbursing the charging sessions, between the 2nd and 6th day of a new month he will receive an overview from us of the charging sessions of the past month. He can rely on this for the reimbursement.
Either the CREG rate is used (for Dutch companies, the rate of the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek) or your employer opts for a fixed reimbursement per kWh.
