1. Third-Party Payer Agreement for season tickets

Using a Third-Party Payer Agreement, you are invoiced monthly for your employer contribution to your employees' season tickets.

  • less administration: no reimbursements to be made to your employees
  • manage season tickets via the SNCB's Business Portal
  • the amount of the employer contribution is offset in full if your employees opt for the tax allowance for professional expenses
  • you will receive a monthly total invoice (including VAT at 6%)

Your statutory employer contribution depends on the distance travelled. Download here the amounts of the Statutory Employer Contribution.

Private-sector employees for whom the employer contribution is as much as 80% of the price of their season ticket travel free of charge in 2nd class thanks to the 20% government contribution. This 80/20 system also applies to combined rail + STIB season tickets. A class upgrade to 1st class, paid for by the employer or employee, continues to remain an option, of course.

    • It is possible to combine your rail season ticket with a TEC/De Lijn/STIB bus, tram or metro season ticket. The valid term of this supplement must match the valid term of your season ticket. For this you need a certificate from your employer. Season tickets and combined season tickets are loaded onto the same MOBIB Card. You can renew your season ticket by visiting MyNMBS, the ticket vending machines or at the station ticket offices.

    • More comfort? Opt for an upgrade to 1st class and take advantage of your train journey to work or relax. This option can be requested at the ticket office, upon presentation of the certificate from your employer.
