What is the Bike To Work Scheme?
This scheme aims to encourage you to cycle to and from work. Under the initiative, your employer can buy a bicycle and safety equipment for you. This will not be a taxable benefit-in-kind which means you could save up to 52% depending on your tax rate. You can buy an e-bike and related safety equipment to the value of €1500.
New bicycles and pedelecs (electrically assisted bicycles which require some effort from the cyclist).
A range of safety equipment is also covered under the scheme
How do I get a bicycle?
You will need to ask your employer if they operate the scheme and their requirements. You choose the bike & equipment to suit your need & use the form below to obtain a quotation.
Your employer pays for the bike and you agree to a ‘salary sacrifice’ over a set time frame (under 12 months), i.e. you give up an agreed amount of your gross salary to cover the cost of the bicycle.
How often can I use it?
Once every four years. You must mainly use the bicycle and safety equipment for qualifying journeys. This means the whole or part of a journey between your home and your normal place of work.
