Bike leasing in Austria – the framework

With the tax reform that entered into force in 2020, the conditions for the company bike model in Austria are similar to those that already existed in Germany. Regarding the terms and conditions, there are various ways for companies in Austria to take advantage of the benefits of company bicycles and provide them to their employees: Either through salary conversion, which implies that the employer withholds part of the employee’s salary for the monthly lease payments, resulting in a tax break for the employee, or as a perk, in which case the employer will make the lease payments.

Benefits for employees:
Bike leasing enables employees to finance a bicycle or e-bike at terms and conditions more favorable than those of a private purchase. Due to the applicable tax benefits, savings of up to 36% are not uncommon. In addition, all accessories permanently attached to the bike can be included in the lease. The bicycle can be used both for commuting to work and for private purposes. At the end of the lease term, the bicycle can either be taken over or exchanged for a new bicycle. Thanks to our premium insurance, the employee is optimally covered for (parts) theft, accidental damage, fall damage, vandalism and much more during the term of the lease. Since this insurance is automatically included in every lease, there is no need to take out separate or additional insurance. Learn about all the benefits for employees.
