Vehicle rental contract - what is it about?

Updated on

Vehicle rental contract is a legal way to reduce your taxes for working with gig apps.

It works like this: you, our contract of mandate employee, rent your vehicle to us at Appjobs, and then we offer you an hourly rental fee based on market rates, calculated using our algorithm.

IMPORTANT: the vehicle is still yours, you drive it as usual, we do not have access to it. It is only a legal formality.

What's all this for? The rental contract is taxed lower than the contract of mandate: 8.5% instead of 12%. We, as a partner, then settle part of the taxes for your work on the basis of a rental agreement with a lower rate - which means that we can pay you more money.


➡️ You can find simulations of the earnings difference with & without rental agreement HERE (English) and HERE (Polish). If you'd like us to prepare a calculation for your own situation, reach out at [email protected].

➡️ You can also find basic market rates for vehicles HERE.

❗ Please note that our system is based on actual market rates, NOT inflated amounts. It is hence fully compliant with the European Union's DAC7 directive and will never be considered as tax evasion attempt. Read more about DAC7 HERE.

The rental agreement is financially beneficial, but it generates an obligation on your side to pay a part of the taxes yourself. Rental income is treated as a different category than income from work, so we can't settle this tax for you.

However, we can calculate the amount you should pay to the tax office - so all it takes for you is to pay that amount to the tax office once a month, on the so-called tax micro-account.
