The Travel Pass scheme allows an employer (eg. the DES) to incur the expense of providing an employee (eg. a teacher) with an annual bus/rail pass, without the employee being liable for benefit-in-kind taxation. The cost of the Travel Pass is deducted from salary and the employee will not pay tax, PRSI, universal social charge or pension related deduction on the cost of the Travel pass.
The scheme becomes operational on 1 January each year.
Details of the scheme are set out in the Circular 0045/2015.
