BIKE TO WORK WITH DECATHLON IRELAND
WHAT IS THE BIKE TO WORK SCHEME?
Using the Cycle to Work scheme, your employer can help you obtain a brand new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,000. You can purchase any of our bikes and cycling equipment under this scheme. The repayment for the bicycle and equipment will be deducted from your gross salary (this means before income tax, PRSI, pension levies or Universal Social Charges are deducted). These deductions can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on your salary payment arrangement. Your employer can also buy the bicycle on your behalf and not require you to pay for it. In this instance, you will be exempt from benefit-in-kind taxation to a cost of €1,000. Your employer will also benefit from PRSI contribution savings. Please note if your employer is registered with a Bike to Work agency the additional charge will be added to your invoice. As we want to provide the best value for money cycling option for our users we can not increase our prices due to Bike to Work agencies. Please check with your employer which Bike to Work agency you are registered with prior to your application. We are currently partnered with Tax-Free Bicycles and Tax Saver Bikes.
