CYCLE TO WORK SCHEMES
GETTING A BIKE THROUGH CYCLE TO WORK
Cycle to work scheme is a great incentive for employees, and companies can save money too – every bike processed through the scheme means an employees National Insurance saving. Everybody wins, and it's time to let your employer know! Help your employer help you!
Cycle to Work is a UK Government tax exemption initiative introduced in the Finance Act 1999 to promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution. It allows employers to loan cycles and cyclists' safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. If you employer hasn't signed up to one of the available cycle to work schemes, the details of how to sign up are on the relevant providers websites below. If we had to recommend a cycle to work provider, we would suggest Cyclescheme. They have the most coverage and would give all employees the most choice of bikes and cycle shops.
Here at the J C Cook Cycles we work with a number of cycle schemes to help get you on the road with your new bicycle and equipment. Your employer has to be willing to run the scheme before you can get your bike. This is because the scheme can only run through what is known as a salary sacrifice, where you agree to temporarily reduce your wages to pay for the hire of goods‚ in this case a bike and equipment.
The scheme is available to UK tax payers who pay PAYE.
Please note that the self-employed cannot take part in the scheme.
