The bike benefit for employees

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

The price of the bike is deducted in 100 € monthly installments directly from your gross salary – so you have also money for other things and you don't have to worry about the 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.

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 an employee benefit offered in the same way as a salary increase. It can be offered to employees within the annual tax-free payment limits. This fringe benefit is tax-free for the employee and tax-deductible for the employer. The bike benefit is considered part of the transport benefit.

It is not necessary to offer the benefit collectively to all staff, and the employer can determine how much of it is provided within the maximum limit set by the Finnish Tax Administration.
