How Tax Saver Works

How do Taxsaver Tickets Work?

Introduced by the Government in 1999, Taxsaver incentivises people to use public transport to and from work.

Employers simply register their company online, receive log in details and start purchasing monthly, quarterly or annual tickets for their employees. The cost is deducted directly from the employees’ gross salary, and massive savings of between 29% and 52% can be made off the regular price, depending on the ticket type and your tax band.

Benefits for Employers?

  1. Your company will make Employer PRSI savings up to 10.75%, as you will have reduced the gross income of each employee receiving a Taxsaver commuter ticket. That’s a saving of over €1,000 to the company on a €11,000 order.

Benefits for Employees?

  1. Employees can make significant tax and PRSI savings when they receive their annual, quarterly or monthly Taxsaver ticket as part of their remuneration package.
  2. Savings of up to 40% tax, 8% USC and 4% PRSI can be made on the cost of the ticket. Individual savings vary depending on a person’s PAYE, PRSI and USC bands.
