Our Cycle2Work salary sacrifice scheme, provided by Halfords, allows you to save money and spread the cost of a new bike and accessories. The scheme acts as a tax break, which means you can get a brand-new bike without paying tax and national insurance on it. The cost of your new bike is spread out over a fixed 12-month period, with the Council deducting the money directly from your gross salary.
Our green car salary sacrifice scheme, provided by Tusker, gives you access to a brand-new car of your choice, insured and maintained for a fixed monthly payment. It takes the hassle out of motoring as all you need to do is keep it topped up with fuel. Everything else is taken care of; servicing and maintenance, insurance, road tax, roadside assistance and even replacement tyres.
