Bike 2 Work Scheme
At Askew Cycles we have teamed up with CycleScheme (the UK's number one provider of, tax free bikes) to offer employers and employees around the UK and Cumbria, access to the Government led scheme to encourage more people to take up, or re-discover the joys of cycling.
The philosophy behind the CYCLE TO WORK SCHEME is to encourage more people out of the rush hour traffic jams and into the freedom and flexibility of two wheels. This not only helps with the environment but creates a happier, healthier and alert workforce. In practice it means that any employee who is PAYE registered can purchase a new bike and accessories, at a greatly reduced price. To encourage people to particpate in the scheme, the Government has subsidesed the scheme under its Green Transport Plan, by offering upto a 50% saving on the cost of a new bicycle and safety equipment. The scheme is run through employers and administered by CycleScheme so the paper work is kept to a minimum.
HOW IT WORKS: Each employee who signs up for the scheme, purchases their chosen bike and accessories then saves the VAT, National Insurance and income tax.
It doesn't matter how big or small your company is, as long as your employees are PAYE registered the scheme is a real winner! Any queries please do not hesitate to get intouch, on 01539 728057 or contact Cyclescheme direct on www.cyclescheme.co.uk
