Bike to Work Scheme at Jimmy's

The Bike to Work Scheme is a tax incentive scheme to encourage employees to cycle to work. Under the scheme, an employer can pay for a new bicycle (including bicycle accessories) and the employee then repays the cost in regular instalments from their gross salary.

The Basics

Using the Bike to Work scheme, you can avail of a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,250 on regular bikes and €1500 on Electric bikes
You can use a salary sacrifice arrangement to pay for the bike monthly
This means you can save up to 52% of the retail price of bike and equipment through personal tax and PRSI relief on your salary
