Bike to Work

1. What is the Bike to Work scheme?

The Bike to Work scheme allows your employer to assist you in obtaining a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,250 for a regular bike, up to €1,500 for an electric bike and up to €3000 for a cargo bike. (Excess cost is paid by the employee)

2. How does the scheme work?

Your employer can cover the cost of a new bicycle, including accessories, and you repay the cost, minus the tax, in regular instalments from your gross salary.

3. What are the benefits of participating in the Bike to Work scheme?

By participating in the scheme, you can save up to 52% off the retail price of the bike and equipment through salary sacrifice. You are not liable for tax, PRSI, or the Universal Social Charge on your repayments. Public service employees are also exempt from the pension levy.

4. How do I know if my employer is registered for the scheme?

If your employer has yet to register, you can encourage them to do so. Once registered, you'll be just a few clicks away from getting your shiny new bike.
