How do I apply for a tax free bike through the Cyclescheme?
You can find out all of the information on how to apply, plus much more on the Cyclescheme Opens in a new window, however, a brief overview on applying goes like this:
Firstly, visit a bike shop of your choice to get a quote on the bike you’d like and accessories if needed (locally owned bike shops are advised, as not only does it help the local community but you are more likely to get a more personal approach from them!)
Enter this information, along with your personal and employment details onto the Cyclescheme Opens in a new window website, to request your Cycle E-Voucher (this is an online voucher that is sent to you, once your eligibility has been checked and approved by your employers Payroll and HR department). The voucher will then be issued and will enable you to collect your goods.
