As of August 2020 the upper spending limit on bicycles and associated equipment has increased. The spend limit for regular pedal bikes is €1,250 and for eBikes is €1,500. (inclusive of associated equipment).
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 commuting to work (or parts thereof) or travel between work places.
Important: Bicycles can only be purchased from UCC's approved suppliers (no exceptions).
To avail of the Scheme: please complete all pages of the Application Form, scan it and email it to Imelda.
Please note: When purchasing a bike from any Halfords store it can take 5 - 6 weeks until you can pick up your new bicycle.
