Travelling to work can cost the earth in more ways than one and that’s why more and more people are opting to bike to work and leave the car at home. As well as helping employees reduce the cost of travel, companies can make significant savings in National Insurance too.
Through the bike to work scheme employees get a new bike for travelling to work, and because they pay for it through a salary sacrifice arrangement, employees can make significant savings in income tax and NI.
Employers save money through reduced employers’ NI contributions. The bike to work scheme really appeals to staff looking to reduce their travelling costs and to get fit at the same time. So, you get a healthier and happier workforce along with company savings too.
