How can I best arrange Swapfiets for Business for tax purposes?
As of January 2020 the tax regulations in Germany have changed regarding company bicycles.
A bicycle that the employer makes available to the employee for private use, including for transport between home and work, must not be taxed anymore through the employee provided that the costs of the bike are not claimed in the regular wage of the employee but by the employer as an additional service.
If the cost of the bicycle is included in the employee's salary it will be taxed at 0,25% of the market value.
Company bikes lower social expenditures for the employee and can be deducted as business expenses.
Are there any additional costs?
Generally there are no additional costs, however based on the size and the duration of the contract, we reserve the right to charge transportation costs.
