Cycle To Work Scheme – save up to 52%

This scheme aims to encourage you to cycle to and from work. Under the scheme the employer can buy a bicycle and safety equipment for the employee. This will not be a taxable benefit-in-kind.

There are now two limits, depending on the type of bicycle purchased.

Two Limits:

  1. For pedelecs or ebikes and related safety equipment the limit is €1,500.
  2. For other bicycles and related safety equipment the limit is now €1,250.

The following new safety equipment, if purchased with the bicycle, are also covered:

  • cycle helmets
  • bells and bulb horns
  • lights, including dynamo packs
  • mirrors and mudguards
  • cycle clips and dress guards
  • panniers, luggage carriers and straps
  • locks and chains
  • pumps, puncture repair kits, cycle tool kits and tyre sealant
  • reflective clothing, white front reflectors and spoke reflectors.

The employer makes payment in full to the cycle provider and the amount is deducted periodically from the employee net pay over a period of not more than 12 months.

It is possible to reapply for the scheme every four years.
