UCC Employer Bicycle Scheme

NOTE:   Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, applications for the Cycle-to-Work Scheme should be submitted via email only.  When you have completed  all three pages of the Form please SCAN and send it to:  In addition, the invoice needs to be scanned and emailed as a "separate" attachment.  Thank you.

Please ensure that the Supplier makes out the invoice to UCC, rather than your name (as UCC are actually paying for the bicycle)

Please note that as of 1st August 2020 the upper spending limit on bicycles and associated equipment has changed.  The spend limit for pedelecs or eBikes and associated equipment is now €1,500.  The spend limit for all pedal bikes and associated equipment is now €1,250. 

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. One of the conditions 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 over 1,200 Bicycles to its staff members.

Please see the full list of current UCC Agresso approved suppliers below. 

To avail of this scheme: please fill out all pages of the Application Form, scan it and email it to Imelda.

If you have any queries at all, please contact Imelda at

* In addition, please note that when purchasing a bike from any Halfords store it can take a minimum of 6 - 8 weeks to process an application.
