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.
