How does the cycle to work scheme work for employers?

The cycle to work scheme allows employees to obtain commuter bikes and cycling accessories through their employer, whilst spreading the cost over 12 months and making unbeatable savings through a tax break.

Cyclescheme makes the implementation, coordination and administration of the cycle to work scheme a doddle. 

Cyclescheme in 3 easy steps:

1
The employer registers with Cyclescheme - this only takes about 5 mins. Once registered the employer will be able to access free of charge promotional resources to help them publicise their exciting new employee benefit.
2
The employee visits their  local bike shop or browses online to decide what they want; they then apply via the Cyclescheme website. The employer reviews their request and if they are eligible pays for the equipment.
3
The employee receives their bike and starts their salary repayments. After 12 months the employer will have recovered their costs and generated up to 13.8% in savings. The employee will be given their ownership options.

Employer checklist:

You pay your workforce via Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE).
You have the right to enter into a legal agreement on behalf of the business or organisation you work for.
You are able to pay for your employees' bikes (don't worry, you will recover these costs from their gross salaries).
