Company Bike Makes cyclists' hearts beat faster
What is it all about?
Healthier, more sustainable and often faster! Get to work by bike instead of by car. With the so-called Company Bike leasing program, we enable you to lease a bike of your choice through us. We are the actual lessee and let you use the bike. With tax benefits, you save a lot of money this way and get the bike you want at a low price, which you might not be able to afford otherwise. You can also just use your bike privately.
Lisa has wanted a cargo bike for a long time, but it costs 4,390 EUR—just too expensive for her at the moment. The solution: a service bike from ELATEC. Since she earns less than EUR 3,500 gross, she also gets a monthly allowance of EUR 30 instead of EUR 15 for the bike. With her tax bracket, she thus pays only 63.22 EUR per month, including all-around protection. If she takes over the bike at the end of the leasing period, that adds up to about EUR 439. In total, she would save about 1,675 EUR.
What do I get out of it?
- You get the bike of your dreams at favorable terms: you can freely choose the type and brand of bike from 3,000 connected dealers.
- Compared to a purchase, you save up to 40% of the costs; ELATEC pays the VAT.
- The leasing rates reduce your gross salary, so you pay less tax and lower social security contributions.
- Private trips do not have to be taxed (in contrast to a company car).
- At the end of the term (36 months), you can take over the bike at a much lower price than the original price. Or you can return your bike and simply choose a new model.
- You have maximum coverage, because the leasing rate includes comprehensive insurance and a freely selectable maintenance package.
- The application process is super simple and goes very quickly.
How does it work?
- You choose the bike you want at one of our dealers. It may cost up to EUR 5,000, or more in exceptional cases upon application; the leasing period is 36 months.
- ELATEC gives you a subsidy of EUR 15 or EUR 30 (for employees with a gross salary of less than EUR 3,500 for full-time employees).
- You can calculate your individual costs here at Lease-a-Bike, our partner: www.lease-a-bike.de/rechner. You can find more details about the conditions in the HR-Info drive.
- If you are interested, just contact HR.
- You will receive a registration link for the Lease-a-Bike portal and an order code after approval by HR. With this code you can choose your dream bike, including an all-around protection package at a dealer of your choice.
- As soon as you have digitally accepted the transfer contract, you can pick up your new bike. And start cycling ;)
