How does it work?

The employee repays the cost of the bike via an initial hire agreement with the employer, this is where the savings happen. At the end of the initial 12 month bike hire agreement you have paid back the cost, however, there are some tax implications. So, to avoid this, an additional free loan agreement is agreed, after which ownership can be transferred to the employee for £1. We've made it easy for you to set everything up by including all the information you need in our pack.

See what you could save

Because the hire payments are made using a salary sacrifice (before PAYE deductions) it means you don’t pay tax or national insurance on the price of the bike. So although your salary will be reduced by the full price of the bike, you pay less tax on your remaining income. Saving you up to 42% on the bike cost. It can be quite hard to explain, so hopefully the charts below can help.

Higher rate taxpayer

£500 £41.67 £24.17 £290 £210
£800 £66.67 £38.67 £464 £336
£1,000 £83.33 £48.33 £580 £420

£500 £41.67 £28.33 £340 £160
£800 £66.67 £45.33 £544 £256
£1,000 £83.33 £56.67 £680 £320

So if we look at the lower rate tax payer as an example and you choose to get a £1,000 bike, your gross salary will be reduced by £83.33 per month. However, because there is now less money to pay tax on, your NET salary will only be reduced by £56.67. So the £1,000 bike costs you just £680, saving you £320.

Do as you please

As long as the main purpose of the bike is commuting, other use is perfectly fine. There is no need to log your mileage, or hit a certain threshold, so it is perfectly fine to stick to the train for those wet and miserable mornings.
