As of January 1, 2020 there is a new legislation, which applies an additional favourable scheme of 7% available for the private use of an employee bike. The addition for a Swapfiets for Business subscription can be compared with the addition for the private use of a company car.
- A Swapfiets Original subscription costs EUR 13,64 per month
- The purchase price of the Swapfiets Original is calculated at EUR 350.
- The tax liability is 7% of the purchase price, which comes down to EUR 24,50 per year = EUR 2,04 per month.
- This amount is seen as gross salary so the employee pays tax over this amount.
- The costs for the employer are EUR 13,64 (excl. VAT) per month.
- The costs for the employee are EUR 0,76 per month, with a tax rate of 37,35% (tax bracket 1).
Another option is to let Swapfiets be part of the WKR (Work-Related Expense Scheme, or in Dutch Werkkostenregeling). The WKR allows you as an employer to offer tax-free allowances and benefits to your employees, including a bicycle.
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.
