How does a FAVR vehicle
program work?

Driving a vehicle incurs two types of costs: fixed and variable. FAVR, or fixed and variable rate, addresses both.

Each employee receives a reimbursement rate based on:
A-Standard-Vehicle

Company-selected, job-appropriate car

Territory Costs

What makes a FAVR reimbursement fair?

FAVR accurately addresses the costs of owning and operating a standard vehicle relative to each employee's territory costs and miles driven.

Unequal expenses should not receive equal reimbursements. Standard allowances and mileage rates over-reimburse some employees and under-reimburse others. FAVR solves this problem and is tax-free for both company and employee (IRS Revenue Procedure 2010-51).
