The Cycle 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 bicycles and bicycle equipment for their employees and the employee pays 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.
There is a limit of up to €1,250 in respect of standard bicycles and €1,500 in respect of ‘e-bikes’ as part of the Government’s Jobs Stimulus Plan.(If you go over the limit you just pay the balance yourself).
(This includes bicycles, safety equipment and delivery charges). If you spend more than this limit you are liable for a benefit-in-kind income tax charge.
