How can I best arrange Swapfiets for Business for tax purposes?
A bicycle that the employer makes available to the employee for private use, including for transport between home and work, must be taxed, unless the bicycle is made available exclusively for commercial transport (State Tax Act §4, Taxation Act §16). If the bicycle is used privately, it will result in full taxation of the goods. If the bicycle is used exclusively for driving between residence and permanent place of employment, it is an employer-paid transport (free transport), which is, in principle, only taxed if the employee receives a transport allowance at the same time. If there is a tax, this will be done via a supplement to the employee's gross salary corresponding to the amount that the employer pays for rent including VAT (the market value)
