Important: Funding period for De-minimis has started
From 8th January until 1nd October 2018 all enterprises that paid toll fees last year in Germany can partially recover their expenses through the funding programme De-minimis
. Applications can be submitted through the eService-Portal
of the German Federal Office for Goods Transport. The De-minimis catalogue has been changed regarding winter tyres and expenses for secured public parking area. Telematics platforms like TachoWeb remain potential measures for funding. A new addition to the catalogue is the conversion of trucks from diesel to electric drive. The budget arrangement remains in force, enterprises don’t have to specify the funding measures in advance. Just like last year, the proof of utilization or leasing contracts have to be submitted to the BAG until five months after receiving the allocation decision. Nevertheless, early application is recommended, since the period for implementing measures will be longer.
News about posting directives of France and Luxembourg
Good news for companies, which have to dispatch drivers to France or Luxembourg: In contrast to an announcement at the end of last year, France doesn’t charge for secondment certificates which have to be registered in the online portal SIPSI. Initially, the government had planned to charge a fee of 40 Euro per half-year. However, France didn’t state if the portal will also remain free of charge in the future.
Meanwhile, Luxembourg has suspended its posting directives due to protests of the German Federal Trucking and Logistics Association (BGL) directed towards the EU commission and the government of Luxembourg. The excessive bureaucratic hurdles have been repeatedly criticized by the BGL. According to the association, the regulations have made short-term transports de facto impossible. The government of Luxembourg has now announced the revision of the posting directives.
