Motus FAVR

Fixed and Variable Rate (FAVR) Reimbursements are the only IRS-recommended methodology that is highly customizable to your company’s needs.


Fixed and Variable Rate

Unlike one-size-fits-all programs that are cost-intensive and unfairly balanced, a FAVR solution is an IRS-backed, tax-free program that is easy to use, fair, cost-effective and accurately reimburses employees for their fixed and variable costs.

Fixed Costs
Fixed Costs
Fixed costs are constant payments but are individually calculated for each employee based on factors such as vehicle type, annual business mileage and geography. They include depreciation, insurance, taxes and fees.
Variable Costs
Variable Costs
Variable costs vary from month to month and are based on the number of business miles driven and geography. They include fuel and maintenance, including tire wear.

Meeting Your Company’s Vehicle Program Needs

With a FAVR program, everyone across the organization wins—decision makers can improve business results with an efficient, data-backed solution, drivers are set up for a hassle-free experience that delivers tax-free reimbursements and program admins can leverage powerful tools to monitor and manage their program.

  • The Motus Platform powers our FAVR solution, providing accurate mileage reimbursement calculations across the mobile workforce and frequently updated cost components.

Prior to … Motus, the drivers would turn in "handwritten" mileage amounts, with little detail, generally late and difficult to read. Motus provides real time information and for budgeting, that is a definite plus. The information regarding compliance helps us keep insurance requirements for drivers inline and our liability exposure controlled.

Everyone Wins with a Motus FAVR Program

Other business reimbursement programs take a one-size-fits-all approach, leaving companies with a program that doesn’t meet all of their business and driver needs or has features you’ll pay for but won’t use. The Motus FAVR platform eliminates the confusion and ineffectiveness of other programs by providing a system configured to your unique business needs.

Other benefits include:

  • A more balanced approach to reimbursements based on each employee’s role and location, removing the “winners vs. losers” mentality that other programs can create between employees.
  • Increased visibility into business mileage spending along with tools and expertise to continually optimize the program.
  • Reduced liability exposure since insurance verification and compliance with policy minimums can be monitored in one convenient location.
  • Motus expertise to align groups to IRS requirements to help you, and your employees, achieve optimal tax advantages.

Mobile workers are focused on their job and dealing with cumbersome tasks or multiple systems takes time away from driving. With the Motus FAVR platform, drivers can accomplish all their tasks in one system in less than 10 minutes per month, helping them get back to work faster.

Other benefits include:

  • Employees receive a reimbursement specific to fixed and variable costs of operating a vehicle in their location.
  • Manually recording mileage takes time out of every driver’s day. The Motus App improves their work-life balance as automated user initiated tracking gives that time back.
  • More accurate mileage logs ensure drivers receive fair and accurate reimbursements, calculated specifically to the cost of driving in their location.
  • Employees can easily view their driving days, mileage and reimbursement history at any time. They’ll also receive notifications when due dates are approaching
