We were looking for a party that could take the burden off our shoulders and we found it in Lease a Bike. For the time being, the platform completely fulfills our expectations.
Joeri Welslau, STIHL
There’s a lot of enthusiasm. Our employees were really waiting for this. Some people drove to Brussels to get their hands on that particular bike. The positive vibe is very nice, which is welcome in these days.

How does leasing a bicycle work?

When we introduce a lease bike to your employees, we use the 'cafeteria plan'. In 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.

How much administration will 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 about taxes and social security connected to a lease bike?

If the bicycle is used "regularly" for commuting, the bicycle is exempt from taxes for both employee as employer. You will save about 25% on taxes for social security. In general budget neutrality is applied for the employer and these savings will be reinvested in the lease cost of the bicycle.

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

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.

Is there a benefit in kind (voordeel alle aard) for the employee?

There is no benefit in kind (voordeel alle aard) voor employees when the bike is regularly used for commuting from home to work. It is advised to use a bike policy where the regular use is agreed between employer and employee.

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 24 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.

Can the bike also be used for business purposed?

The bike can be used for business purposes as long as the bike is regularly used for commuting from home to work. It is not possible to use the bike only for business purposes.

How does a lease bicycle fit within our current mobility forms?

The lease bicycle if frequently offered in addition to the existing mobility plans. In addition to a lease car or usages of public transport as it fits perfectly within a mobility budget. It is also possible to offer a lease bicycle as an extra benefit.

Which bicycles can you choose from?

At Lease a Bike you can choose any bike from € 499 and up, with a free choice for all brands and types. From city to electric bike and mountain to racing bike: everything is possible, as long as it has two wheels. Even a speed pedelec is one of the options.

Where are employees able to buy a lease bicycle?

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.



How can my employees pay for the lease costs?

Together with the employee are you free to choose to exchange the compensation elements they have available for the lease costs. Some examples of those elements are: 13th month, gross salary, downgrade of the commercial vehicle or a bonus.

Is it possible to do an early termination of the contract?

Every contract has a fixed term of 36 months, within this time it is not possible to end the lease contract.

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. 

What happens when the lease contract of 36 months ends?

We make an offer for the employee to take over the bicycle for +- 15% of the value (new). The exact amount cannot be determined on forehand and depends on the final condition of the bicycle. If the employee is not interested in taking over the bicycle, we will take the bicycle back - free of charge. There is never a risk for the employee or employer here.

Who owns the bicycle during the lease period?

The lease company is the owner of the bicycle during the entire lease period.

What resources do I need for the platform?

Not much: a computer with an internet connection and Google Chrome or Firefox browser.

How do we process the lease contracts in our payroll?

To make the process as easy to manage as possible all lease contracts always start on the 1st of the month. If, in example, an employee picks up a bicycle the 22nd of the month, the contract starts on the 1st of the following month. For an overview of all active lease contracts, you can get an export from our platform. We provide this monthly.
