Who can get a bike?
Employees paying PAYE, who have a contract that outlasts the duration of the salary sacrifice period are eligible, provided they are over 18 years old, earn more than the National Minimum Wage after the loan repayment has been deducted, and have completed the employer's probationary period (if applicable).
What is salary sacrifice and how are savings made?
With a salary sacrifice you pay back the loan on your bike, accessories and safety equipment from gross rather than net pay for the hire period (usually 12 months), allowing you to benefit from income tax and NI relief. See www.hmrc.gov.uk/specialist/salary_sacrifice.pdf for a more detailed explanation.
How much can I save?
Typical savings are between 30% and 50%., but the actual amount you pay depends on your personal tax band, and the way your company runs the scheme. Higher rate taxpayers will save more, employees whose company cannot reclaim VAT (the NHS, for example) will save less. If the employer uses external finance (ie your employer borrows the money to buy the bikes from an outside) then savings are normally about 5% lower. Finally, the fair market value payment needs to be taken into account when calculating the total savings.
Can I get any bike?
You can choose any bike, including electric bikes, providing your chosen Cyclescheme partner can supply it. Some bike shops may add an administration fee to quotes for custom bikes, because the profit margins are lower than those available on standard, mass-produced models. If your employer wants to supply bikes costing over £1000 (retail price including VAT) then they will need a Consumer Credit Licence, and this costs £725, so many employers limit the package value to £1000.
You can also now use the cycle scheme, for new or existing customers, on safety equipment each year if you already have a bike and do not require a new one. This includes items such as helmets, clothing, shoes, racks, bags, lights and other safety gear, up to £1000.
