Cycle to Work Scheme HMRC: Ensuring Full Compliance

With over 40,000 employers signed up to the Cycle to Work Scheme in the UK, it has helped more than 1.6 million commuters ride their way to work. There are also tons of benefits to you as an employer. If you’re interested in signing your organisation up to the Cycle to Work Scheme, find out about keeping your company fully HMRC compliant below.

About the Cycle to Work Scheme: How does it work?

Through the scheme, you, as an employer, essentially obtain the goods acquired by an employee. Your employee then pays for their bike and / or accessories with monthly payments deducted from their monthly salary (also known as ‘salary sacrifice’) over a time period decided by you. Your employees’ payments are tax free, and your National Insurance contributions are reduced by up to 13.8%!

Signing up with a Cycle to Work Scheme provider makes it easy to administer the benefit to your organisation, as we help to:

  • Alleviate any of the additional stress and paperwork that comes with running the scheme.
  • Offer advice on salary sacrifice agreements.
  • Create bespoke branding materials for you and your organisation.
  • Ensure full compliance with HMRC.

At Cycle Solutions, we also partner with major employee benefit providers, often used by organisations as an incentive scheme, should you prefer to use this method to distribute the Cycle to Work scheme.

Guarantee full compliance with Cycle Solutions when you sign up to the scheme

When an employee obtains their goods through Cycle to Work, a ‘salary sacrifice’ contract is signed between them and you, the employer. This contract must comply with HMRC rules, which is why working with a scheme provider, such as Cycle Solutions, helps to ensure you and your business remain fully compliant and within your custom scheme parameters.

As Cycle to Work Scheme members themselves, both HMRC and the Government Department for Transport have also signed up with Cycle Solutions to implement their Cycle to Work Scheme, where we administer the following to assure complete compliance:

End-to-end solutions

We create unique webpages for your employees that are specific to your organisation. This means only applicable bikes and / or accessories can be selected, and employees cannot veer from the limits of their scheme.

End of scheme management

At the end of the scheme, we manage how the remaining cost is transferred, with an extended hire agreement option that is completely free of charge.

Salary sacrifice deductions

We help to organise salary sacrifice calculations and deductions, allowing you to relax knowing it is all taken care of.
