Bike to Work Scheme Westport

How does it Work?

The Bike to Work Scheme is a tax incentive scheme which aims to encourage employees to cycle to and from work.

Under the scheme employers can pay for bikes and bike equipment for their employees and the employee pays it back through a salary sacrifice arrangement of up to 12 months.

The employee is not liable for tax, PRSI, levies or the Universal Social Charge on their repayments.

It’s a great way to introduce yourself to the world of cycling, get fit, and do your bit for a greener environment!!

Contact us here at Westport Bikes and we will help make the process as easy as we can.
