However, we can reassure you.
Data protection is a very important topic for us and a personal concern.

All your journeys, which you make privately, are only visible to you - here we are uncompromising and can assure you that your data is not visible to anyone but yourself!

What is an electronic logbook?

A digital driver's logbook records business and private journeys with a vehicle. This is not only useful for simplifying the company's internal invoicing, but is also necessary to properly declare the vehicle's tax status.

What are the costs of a digital logbook?

For an electronic driver's logbook from Rosenberger Telematics, a monthly flat rate is charged, which covers the use of the vehicle throughout Europe as well as data storage for at least 12 months. The price of the hardware depends on the selected product variant.

The installation costs are, e.g., with our OBD plugs PILOT 1200 and PILOT 2000 at 0 Euro (plug & play). 

Why a digital logbook?

The main advantage of an electronic driver's logbook is that it virtually writes itself and thus saves a great deal of time. Whereas with a classic handwritten logbook every trip detail has to be entered manually, the digital logbook automatically records every trip in detail.

How does a digital driver's logbook work?

With the help of the telematics system installed in the vehicle, the current position (GPS) of the vehicle is determined, and the distance traveled is saved on a central server.

This data provides a start and destination address for each trip, the start, and end of the trip, the distance traveled and the duration of the trip.
The type of trip (business, private, way to work) is selected via the Rosenberger Drive app or a so-called multiswitch in the vehicle.

Is a digital logbook recognized by the tax office?

Yes, both in Germany and Austria the electronic logbook is recognized by the tax office.

The German Federal Fiscal Court (BFH) has elaborated on the requirements for a proper driver's logbook in the following rulings:

  • Rulings of 09.11.2005 VI R 27/05, BFHE 211, 508, BStBl II 2006, 408. 
  • Ruling of 01.03.2012 (VI R 33/10, BStBl. II, 2012, p. 505

The Federal Fiscal Court (BFG) summarized the requirements for a proper driver's logbook as follows, for example, in the ruling of 25.11.2015, RV/7101452/2010:

  • the records in a driver's logbook must be complete and correct
  • the logbook must be kept in a timely and continuous manner
  • the logbook must have an orderly and closed external form
  • the logbook must be change-proof
For which vehicles are electronic logbooks available?

The electronic driver's logbook for companies and private users can basically be used regardless of manufacturer. Regardless of whether the electronic driver's logbook is used for the company car, the user's own car or other vehicles, it fulfills its function equally well.

Keeping a logbook in Austria & Germany

The legal basis for logbooks

§ 17 of the Working Hours Act, Federal Law Gazette No. 461/1969, as amended by Federal Law Gazette No. 2/1975. 
§ 5. The employer shall submit or send to the competent authorities and their organs, on request, the personal journey books (personal weekly report books) to be kept, where applicable, the copies of the weekly report sheets and the register for inspection. (Source: ris.bka.gv.at)

For some time now, the Austrian tax office has been increasingly focusing on the control of driver's logbooks in Austria.

Especially in Austria, the rules for keeping a logbook are strict:

  • A record of all journeys in the course of the business trip, as well as private journeys.

    Private journeys are often not taken into account, thus journeys are missing in a manual driver's logbook.

  • The recording of date, point of departure and destination, purpose of the trip, mileage, kilometers driven.

    The drivers of a pool vehicle forget to enter journeys in a manual driver's logbook, thus the assignment of driver, journey, point of departure and destination is difficult or even impossible.

(Source: usp.gv.at)

Electronic driver's logbooks provide a safe and reliable remedy:

  • Automatic recording of all your journeys
  • Simple assignment of journeys (private, way to work, business)
  • Downloadable reports for the tax office at the touch of a button.

According to § 31a para. 3 StVZO, the vehicle owner must hand over the logbook to the ordering body, or a body designated by it, for inspection at any time upon request. In addition, it must be kept for six months after the expiry of the period for which it must be kept.

There is no obligation to keep the logbook. However, this is highly recommended, as otherwise it is difficult to document a change of driver in the event of an inspection.

With our electronic driver's logbook, this problem is a thing of the past.
We automatically record all journeys, thus protecting you and your drivers from legal consequences.

In accordance with section 24 of the German Road Traffic Act (StVG) under sections 31a, 69a of the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO) in conjunction with 190 of the German Road Traffic Act (BKatV), violations are punished as administrative offenses and fines may be imposed:

  • If the driver's logbook keeper or his agent (e.g., fleet manager) does not properly keep the imposed logbook.

    The drivers of the pool vehicle often forget to enter a journey, as a result of which the record of a specific journey is missing from a manual driver's logbook.
    Approval is no longer possible – fines become due.

  • If a driver's logbook is not handed over or not kept.

    The manually written logbook is lost or becomes illegible/destroyed due to external influences.
    In the event of negligence, fines of up to €200 per case may be imposed.

In the event of negligence, fines of up to €200 per case may be imposed.

With our electronic logbook, you no longer have to worry about such cases.
