Tax-free payment in kind in Berlin with the B-CARD

Enjoy culture in one of the many museums in Berlin, such as the New National Gallery. Or simply treat yourself to culinary delights in trendy Berlin restaurants such as the Cocodrillo or the Beuster Bar. Drinks in the Monkeybar or Bar Tausend can be paid for with the credit as well as refueling at the local gas station or weekly shopping at the owner-managed Edeka around the corner.

What is the B-CARD?

The B-CARD is a voucher card for employees that can be redeemed in hundreds of participating local businesses in Berlin and Brandenburg. The B-CARD is available as a physical, sustainably manufactured card or as a digital PDF. Both formats can be digitized with the free Regional Hero Discovery app to securely make contactless payments and discover new favorite places.

Favourite places include a selection of curated small local entrepreneurs: designers, hidden second-hand shops, the most beautiful yoga studio or the best small flower shop. In the Discovery app, they are marked with a red heart on the map.

Who is the B-CARD for?

In principle, the B-CARD can be used by anyone. Card holders rediscover Berlin with the B-CARD and thus support the local economy at the same time. The card is ideal as a gift for private individuals or for the payment of tax-free benefits in kind to employees by employers

In addition, regional companies, such as Sparkasse or Feuersozietät, have the opportunity to set sustainable incentives for their customers.

Why the B-CARD in particular?

The B-CARD is as individual as your employees! Thousands of acceptance points make it possible for each of your employees to find the right thing for them.

In addition, the sustainable design and regional ties make the B-CARD a prize winner from an ecological point of view. Due to its wide range of uses, e.g. for birthdays or for tax-free payments in kind, and the option of quick charging, the B-CARD is also the simplest solution for employers.
