UCC’s Cycle-to-Work (Employer Bicycle) Scheme started in September 2009. Thanks to the Government’s tax relief scheme, employees can save income tax and PRSI on the purchase of a bicycle and related safety equipment, when they buy it through their employer and the price is deducted from their salaries over a maximum of 12 months. Condition is that the bicycle must primarily be used for the commute to work (or parts thereof) or travel between work places. Since the beginning of the scheme UCC has issued in excess of 1000 Bicycles to its staff members.
The scheme operates on an ongoing basis.
