How can I get a lease bike and are there any costs to become Lease a Bike customer?

To offer a bicycle plan to employees does not have to cost a thing. When we introduce Lease a Bike to your employees, we use the 'cafeteria plan'. In this format employees can choose to exchange certain payment elements for their dream (lease) bike. For example: as part of a bonus, gross salary, 13th month.

What happens if an employee leaves the company during a lease contract?

Employer and employee mutually conclude an addendum to the employment contract before the employee is capable of starting a lease contract. Lease a Bike provides an example of this in which agreements are included in the event of premature termination. In this construction, the employer first makes sure the remaining lease funds are fully covered, to recount it to the employee. t is also possible for the employee to take over the bicycle, whereby the set price is deducted from the remaining lease installments. If an employer does not include this, Lease a Bike offers three other options to minimize the risk for the employer:

  1. Employer has the option to pay off the remaining lease installments (without service and insurance costs);
  2. Employer finds another employee to take over the existing lease contract;     
  3. Employer can return a maximum of 4% of the active lease contracts to the lease company free of charge and without penalty.     
How time-consuming will administration of this mobility plan be?

Lease a Bike offers a fully digital and automated platform where all relevant processes and parties (employer, employee and bicycle dealer) come together. We truly make it easy to lease your dream bicycle! With one click of a button you can give every employee permission to lease a bicycle – or decline permission for that matter.

What are the options regards insurance & maintenance?

All contracts concluded by Lease a Bike are standard with all-risk insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance. You could also add a service package of choice. For example:

  1. Basic - Covers up to € 100 in repairs and maintenance per year
  2. Standard - Covers up to € 150 in repairs and maintenance per year
  3. Premium - Covers all repairs and maintenance without limit
  4. Speed ​​pedelec package - Covers up to € 300 in repairs and maintenance per year
Does the Netherlands have a addition of costs for lease bikes?

Yes, it is called 'bijtelling'. To calculate this, you need to add 7% of the recommended retail price of the bicycle to the employee's income. The employer withholds wage tax from this. The employee will find this addition on his pay slip. This works exactly the same as for the lease car. For a bicycle of € 2,500, the employee pays an addition of € 175 per year. This means € 175/12 = € 14.58 per month. The employee adds this amount to his gross income and then pays tax on it. In practice, this amounts to a net amount of € 5 per month.

Could you tell me more about the gross/net benefit?

This depends on the model the company and employee or independent entrepreneur will choose. What ever plan fits, you will always enjoy financial benefits even when an company fully facilitates and does not contribute to the lease price. An employee could pay the lease costs (including maintenance and insurance package) with their gross salary. Depending on the employees tax bracket, he or she will then enjoy a tax advantage of at least 40% compared to a purchase. In our calculator you can calculate the costs and savings of a lease bicycle.

Which brands and kind of bicycles does Lease a Bike offer?

It is possible to get any brand via Lease a Bike, from e-bike to racing bike and from granny bike to mountain bike. Even the (electric) cargo bike is present.

Is it possible to add some accessories to the bike?

Yes, that's possible and it is also included in the lease price. Anything that can be attached to a bicycle, will be leased with the bicycle. A helmet and lock can of course be leased. Clothing and bicycle computers are not allowed.

How could an employer contribute to a bicycle lease?

Lease a Bike offers three different scenarios for offering a lease bike to employees.

  1. Employer invests - The employer pays the full lease costs
  2. Shared investment - Employer and employee determine the distribution of costs.     
  3. Employer facilitates - The employee pays the full lease costs.    
What is a bicycle allowance?

With a lease bike in your near future you are already well on your way, but a bicycle allowance makes it complete! As an employer, you may pay a tax-free bicycle allowance up to 21 cent per cycled kilometer that the employee travels in commuting. There is no obligation to provide a bicycle allowance as this is separate from bicycle leasing.
