Save up to 42% on your e-bike purchase with Cycle-to-Work schemes
Cycling to work is a great way to energise your day. If you are a PAYE employee, you can save money on buying a commuting electric bike by purchasing via a cycle-to-work scheme.
Signing up to these schemes means you can spread out payments on an electric bike through your monthly salary. Since these payments are made before your income tax is deducted, your tax bill is lowered, saving you money.
Thousands of employers are signed up to one of several cycle-to-work schemes such as Green Commute Initiative, Cyclescheme, CyclePlus and Bike 2 Work, and we are happy to guide you through the process.
Voucher Admin Fee...
All cycle-to-work vouchers generate a large commission amount payable by the retailers to the voucher agencies, despite the retailers carrying out the actual sales work. So while we’re happy that the customer makes a tax saving, the commission has a huge negative impact for independent retailers who have to struggle with tight margins. While some retailers pass on the whole commission to the customer, we are happy to split this with you, and so you only pay half.
Check which cycle-to-work scheme is offered by your employer. Typically, this is administered by your HR department, or whoever is in charge of payroll. Your employer may even have appointed a cycling officer.
You will also need to check what the maximum voucher value is available from your employer. Paying extra on top of cycle-to-work voucher is not permitted.
Come into our showrooms to choose the bike that will become your commuting electric bike. We will give you a quote to take back to your employer.
You will typically need to fill in a form that your employer can provide for you.
Once they approve the purchase, they will issue you with a voucher that can be exchanged for the bike.
