Cents per Mile ("CPM")

Simple, powerful, outsourced reimbursements.

Vehicle programs used to be complicated and expensive. We set out to make them simple and affordable for our clients.

Our Cents per Mile program is a powerful tool to reimburse your employees who drive their own car for work. It is a cost-effective replacement for car allowance and company car programs.

This program is ideal for occasional drivers, and can be combined with other programs like our Fixed and Variable Rate (“FAVR”) program to maximize efficiency.

FAQ about TFCA

What are “Cents per Mile reimbursements”?

Every year, the IRS sets a standard mileage rate. This is the maximum rate which can be reimbursed to drivers tax-free. A reimbursement program based on this rate is called a Cents per Mile program.

Are CPM reimbursements tax-free?

As long as your drivers meet the criteria for the CPM program, reimbursements are paid totally tax-free. Driving is a legitimate business expense; the IRS enshrines that in its guidance for CPM programs.

Cardata uses software and keen program oversight to keep your program IRS-compliant and tax-efficient.

How do I know what program to pick? Should I pick this one, FAVR, or TFCA?

Firstly, you do not have to! We run hybrid programs for our clients, which combine elements of several programs.

Choosing a CPM program generally comes down to how far sales forces drive annually. If your drivers cover large distances, FAVR or TFCA may be right for them. If they are occasional drivers, CPM is a great choice.

Call us and, after a few questions, we can tell you what balance of programs would be right for you!

I am in Canada, can I get a Cents per Mile program?

We offer Cents per Kilometer programs in Canada! The CRA sets its rate yearly also, and we have a Canadian program based on their guidance.

When employees bring their own car to work, am I liable for driving accidents?

Cardata verifies every driver’s insurance policy to minimize your risk profile. The wrong insurance endorsement can leave you liable, but Cardata takes care of that. There are more than 100 insurers in the US, but we have the expertise to verify all their various policies.

The right Insurance coverage is a requirement for FAVR Flex programs. Cardata works with every driver to make sure they are covered.
