Hey Folks,

I came across this on the http://www.bromptonbicycle.co.uk website. Over the UK and Northern Ireland they have a Green Transport Plan i.e tax free scheme for bikes.

  • Government Green Transport Plans have opened the door to employees getting up to 50% off the retail price of new bikes and equipement. Payments are made monthly via salary deuctions which can save both the employer and employee tax. Two organisations, Booost and Cyclescheme, undertake the administration of the company scheme once the criteria have been agreed upon with the employer. See www.booost.uk.com or www.cyclescheme.co.uk for more details. Read more in an article in This is Money on www.thisismoney.co.uk/tax-advice”
  • We have a tax free scheme for buying yearly public transport tickets for CIE
    Dublin Bus

    Iarnród Éireann

    Bus Éireann

    and the Luas as well http://taxsavertickets.luas.ie/

    Why not for Bikes??
    Its pretty much the same method,
    Any ideas or thoughts on this? What ya think? Should we push for something similar here in Ireland?
