How Taxsaver works

The Taxsaver scheme is a fantastic way to keep your employees happy, saving them money each month on their commute and freeing up Car Parking spaces!


Your employees can achieve significant savings on the cost of commuting when they receive their Annual or Monthly ticket, up to 52%.

This system benefits everyone as your company will also save 10.75% on Employer PRSI  when you make this deduction from salary payments.


There are several ways you can assist your employees in receiving a Taxsaver Ticket:

Salary sacrifice Example

Employees can reduce their gross salary by the cost of their chosen ticket and will therefore reduce the taxable element of their salary: 

  • Employee earns €30,000 Gross Salary
  • Annual ticket costs €1,800 and is deducted from their Gross Salary
  • New Taxable salary €28,200

In place of cash bonus

Employees can reduce their cash bonus and receive a taxsaver ticket to the same value.

  • Employee receives an Annual bonus of €2,000
  • Annual ticket costs €1,800 and is used as part of the bonus
  • Amount of Bonus Taxable €200

Receiving a taxsaver ticket in place of a cash bonus offers regular commuters an ideal tax saving method of payment. 

Addition to salary

This is a popular option for employers involved in a staff retention process. It is also a great way of reducing the number of car parking spaces needed.
