Because at bikesdirect365 we pirce our products to be as competitive as possible any bike purchased via the Bike2Work Scheme will be subject to a 15% administration fee on the already discounted website selling price. This will be added to the bike invoice price along with £ 9.99 for delivery.
More information on the Bikes2Work Scheme
What is the Bikes2Work Scheme?
Bikes2Work Scheme is an independent company created to help employers and employees make the most of the Governments Green Transport Plan Initiative.
How do you join the Bikes2Work Scheme?
Your employer has to be willing to run the scheme before you can get your bike. Your employer can get a full information pack from www.bike2workscheme.co.uk
How much can you 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 (i.e. your employer borrows the money to buy the bikes from an outside source) then savings are normally 5% lower. Finally, the fair market value payment needs to be taken into account when calculating the total savings.
How are the savings made?
Your employer buys the bike from the Bike2Work Scheme and hires it to you. You pay back the loan on your bike, accessories and safety equipment from gross rather than net pay. Your payments are deducted from your gross monthly salary.
