The advantages of NS Zakelijk
Just one invoice
All your employees’ trips are billed in arrears on one monthly invoice, which you can easily view in the Mijn NS Zakelijk portal. How’s that for clarity.
The NS-Business Card is free. You only pay for the trips your employees take. You can always upgrade to a subscription.
Cancellable monthly
You can cancel NS-Business Cards with a subscription every month. You can also switch to a different subscription every day.
NS is a leader in sustainable transport. All our trains run on green electricity. Shared cars and other supplementary transport are electric wherever possible. And NS helps your organisation to render its mobility policy more sustainable. Make going green more appealing by giving your employees freedom of choice. The bicycle or train instead of the car. Or working from home every now and then.
NS has 180 years of experience in mobility and is the largest mobility provider in the Netherlands.

If you and/or your employees travel more often by public transport, then a subscription to your NS-Business Card is advantageous. You can use all the features of an NS-Business Card and have lower costs due to a fixed monthly subscription fee.

Anonymous cards
If several employees will be using public transport at different times, anonymous cards can be useful. This way, your employees can get from A to B flexibly. Depending on the situation, they can use their own car, or travel by public transport. There are two types of anonymous cards: department cards and company cards.
Department Card
Department cards are not tied to an individual and can be used by all members of a team. You can order department cards as long as your organisation has agreed to make these available for employees. You can order the card with or without a Dal subscription. You can then assign the department cards to the employees who will travel with the card.
Company Card
The company card takes anonymity one step further. The process is similar to ordering a department card. Simply select a department card and leave the name of the department blank. This NS Business Card (with or without a Dal subscription) will then be registered in the general name of your company.
Frequently asked questions
A free NS-Business Card. How does it work?
Ordering an NS-Business Card is free. You pay nothing for the card. If you don't use the card, you don't pay anything. Only when you use the card or put a subscription on it will the costs be charged on a monthly invoice.
The NS-Business Card with or without subscription. How does it work?
The NS-Business Card is a travel card with which you check in and out in public transport and at our door-to-door services. Your employer receives the invoice afterwards. It is not a subscription (because you only pay for the journeys you make): it is a card that you use to travel.
Do you regularly travel by train on the same route? Or outside peak hours? Then a subscription is almost always more advantageous. Your employer can easily add a subscription to your NS-Business Card. This is completely optional and flexible to activate, change or cancel.
With an NS-Business Card without subscription you can travel just like with an OV-chipkaart, only you will not get a discount on the fare.

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.
Can I travel internationally with my NS-Business Card?
Yes, you can. You can book international train tickets via Mijn NS Zakelijk easily and quickly, without paying any additional costs.
