Working one day a week from home and being able to use your mobility budget to pay back the house ?


Working one day a week from home and being able to use your mobility budget to pay back the house rent or mortgage interest and principal?


This is possible in some cases!


Does the main place of work have to be the place where one works more than 50% of the time to be entitled to the reimbursement of the house rent or the interest and capital of the mortgage?


MMBB received an answer to this question from the SPF Employment, which is responsible for answering questions on the mobility budget.


In short, the answer from the SPF is no: it can be less than 50% of the time if the place where the person worked the most is located less than 10 km from his or her home (the home can also be his or her place of work).


Here is the detailed answer of the FPS Employment:


The usual place of work is determined per calendar month and the accommodation costs for that month are validated accordingly. If there are several usual places of work during the same calendar month, the usual place of work for that month is the one where most of the hours were worked during that month.

The usual place of work may therefore be the office, the place of residence (teleworking) or the client's premises.


If after the visit to the customer the sales representative continues to work at home, teleworking may be (partially) possible.


It should be possible to prove that the worker has actually worked the most hours at home each month.


The calculation is made on the basis of the number of hours actually worked in that month and taking into account the rules on working hours and telework (see in this respect CAO no. 85 of the CNT).


In a case where there are three different workplaces in a month (home, office and client) and assuming that the worker worked the same number of hours each day at the different workplaces, the home can be considered a normal workplace for that month.


The mobility budget can therefore be used to finance the accommodation costs for that month.
