NS Flex & NS-Business Card

What is the difference between the NS-Business Card and NS Flex?
With the NS-Business Card or NS Flex you choose a way of traveling that suits you. You travel on account and therefore do not need to add any balance to your card. The difference between the NS-Business Card and NS Flex?
  • Way of invoicing
    • With the NS-Business Card you receive all trips made on one monthly VAT invoice.
    • With NS Flex, you do not receive an invoice but have the option to create a separate declaration statement without VAT percentages in your My NS account.
  • Use of shared transport
    • With both cards you can easily use the train, bus, tram, metro, OV-fiets and 'Stallen op rekening'. With the NS-Business Card you can also choose the international train, shared cars and shared scooters. All costs appear afterwards on one invoice.

Traveling with the free NS-Business Card. How does it work?
You order and use an NS-Business Card for free. You pay nothing for the card. And if you do not travel (and therefore do not use the card), you pay nothing either.
With our card you can travel by train, bus, tram and metro. And - if your employer gives permission - you can use our other door-to-door services, such as a Greenwheels shared car, OV-fiets or Check's electric scooter.
You travel on account, so you do not have to pay anything up front. Your employer will receive a monthly invoice for your travel.

Which business subscriptions can I choose from?
Go to our subscriptions overview page.
Do I need to add balance on my NS-Business Card?
No, in contrast to the OV-chipkaart you do not need to top up your balance on an NS-Business Card. Your organisation will receive an invoice every month for your travel.
Did you add balance to your NS-Business Card anyway? Then unfortunately your card is no longer working properly. Go to the NS desk at the station to get your balance back or to top it up to € 0.00. Then your NS-Business Card will work again, of course only if the card is still valid.
What are the benefits of a Dal subscription for me?
During off-peak hours you get a 40% discount on your train journeys. Do you, like 90% of all business travellers, sometimes travel outside peak hours or at the weekend? You'll save money with only 1 trip per month!
Suppose you travel once a month from The Hague CS to Amersfoort and back during off-peak hours. You will save €8.28 with the Dal subscription.

  • € 32.40 for the ticket
  • € 0.00 fixed monthly costs
  • € 32.40 total monthly costs
With the Dal subscription
  • € 19.44 for the ticket
  • € 4.68 fixed monthly costs
  • € 24.12 total monthly cost

Deducting VAT on business, commuting or private travel expenses
Business travel expenses
You can always deduct VAT on business expenses such as business transportation and business travel.
Commuting expenses
You cannot always reclaim VAT on your commuting expenses, as transportation plans and subscriptions are considered benefits in kind. You can reclaim VAT on subscriptions with a maximum price of € 227 per year. This is lower than the average price of a subscription. This is all governed by the Input Tax Deduction (Exclusion) Decree. It always pays to discuss your situation with your tax advisor.
Private travel expenses
This includes public transport tickets and employees using their private vehicles. Employees using company vehicles for private purposes are subject to VAT rules. For more information, visit the website of the Dutch Tax & Customs Administration or consult your tax advisor.
