Is my Employer in the Cycle to Work Scheme banner

How do I know if my employer registered to the Cycle to Work Scheme?

If you’re an employee looking to acquire a bike through the Cycle to Work Scheme, your employer will need to be registered with us. It’s completely free for them to register, and once registered, you can start searching for the perfect bike and accessories, making huge savings in the process.

Does my employer have to be registered?

In short, yes! Through the scheme, your employer essentially pays for the goods acquired, organising for your monthly payments to be deducted from your gross salary. If you’re not sure whether your organisation is signed up, your best bet is to ask either your boss or have a chat with HR.

Don’t worry, there are a ton of employer benefits to signing up to the scheme too, including recouping the full cost of the goods plus up to an additional 13.8% back on top!

You can also refer your employer with our handy form, here.

What happens after my employer signs up?

Once your employer has signed up to the Cycle to Work Scheme, it’s time to start shopping for you new tax free bike & accessories. You can find a full step-by-step guide on how to buy your bike through the scheme, but visit our How to Buy a Bike on the Cycle to Work Scheme guide.

I’m self-employed, can I use the Cycle to Work Scheme?

The Cycle to Work Scheme operates using salary sacrifice – meaning that to take part, you must be paying tax and National Insurance via PAYE.

If you’re self-employed, you’ll be paying income tax and National Insurance annually based on your profits via Self-Assessment, but you don’t receive a salary. Therefore, as you can’t utilise the salary sacrifice aspect, you aren’t able to take part.
