The bike benefit for employers

The bike benefit is a tax-free employee benefit that can be offered tax-free for 1,200 euros per year per employee. The benefit can be offered in three ways. The most common way is by deducting it from the employee's gross salary on a monthly basis. Any type of company that wants to invest in the well-being of its employees can offer the benefit.

The bike benefit for employees

With an employer-provided bike, you cycle both work and leisure trips! The Edenred Bike benefit makes it easier and more affordable to acquire a quality bike. Thanks to the tax-free benefit, you can save between 15-35 % off the bike’s purchase price.

If the benefit is offered as part of the salary, the price of the bike is deducted in 100 € monthly instalments directly from your gross salary – so you have money left for other things and you don't even have to worry about the monthly payments yourself. Due to this deduction, your tax percentage decreases without affecting e.g. your pension contributions. Calculate your savings with Vapaus' benefit bike calculator.

If the employee bicycle is offered on top of the salary, it is equated to a salary increase. This does not increase your tax rate.

You can choose your dream bike from over 200 brands, ranging from traditional bikes to electric bikes. With the bike benefit, you can also purchase various accessories, such as such as lights, pedals, and tires, tax-free for your bicycle.

The taxation of the bike benefit 

The bike benefit is a tax-free fringe benefit for the employee and tax-deductible for the employer. The benefit can be offered even if the company does not have a commuting benefit. However, it is good to note that the bike benefit reduces the annual tax-free amount of the possible commuting benefit. The bike benefit offered by the employer to its employee is tax-free up to 1200 € / per year, however the maximum total tax-free amount of the commuting benefit and the bike benefit is 3400 € / year / employee.

The bike benefit does not have to be offered to the staff collectively, and the employer can determine how much it is offered within the annual tax-free payment limits set by the Finnish Tax Administration.
