Cycle to Work scheme

#1
Hello.

I cycle to work every day through London and I've heard about this "Cycle to Work" Scheme the Government has implemented which means that your employer pays for the bike and you pay back the employer through deductions in your salary, tax free. Thereby saving you up to 50%.

The Admin Office looked at me blankly when I enquired this morning but Cycle Surgery says I need to get a voucher from my employer. Does anyone know about this?

Cheers

The 'Chain' of Command should know!

Thank you, I had managed to get that far............ Still no mention of the MOD and how I go about getting the shagging voucher out of the Admin Office though!

I've posted the reasons on here before as to why we don't get it.

However...................there are some shenannigans afoot to do something about it. It may take some time, but I'll report back here if and when we get somewhere. I'm in an unholy alliance with some civil servants on this.

Because if you cycle to work and don't drive a car then it would be a fraudulent claim....
...but only if you don't drive a car. For those that do own both a car and a bicycle I can't see the problem.

The original poster said they cycled daily. Regardless as to whether they own a car they are not using it to get to work and as such should not claim HDT at the car rate.
