Tax-free bike benefit in Finland

Since the beginning of 2021 bike benefit has been available in Finland. Read here how to get a Pelago as an employer-provided company bike.

Since the beginning of 2021 bike benefit has been available in Finland. This means that the employers have now a possibility to offer their employees a company bike. Comparable to a company car, a company bike is intended for a personal use of an employee and is tax-free up to 1200€ per year. With the bike benefit employees can save even about 30 to 50% from the bike’s original retail price. The final saving depends on employee’s tax bracket.

So I want to get a Pelago bike as a bike benefit. How does it work?

First step is that the employer makes an agreement with a bike leasing service. You can find Pelago bikes for example from the selection of VapausGoByBike ja Etufillari. After you know which company or service your employer is using, it’s time to visit the Pelago store and select the right bike model for you.

Besides the bike, all the accessories attached to the bike will be tax-free when you buy them all at the same time: front and rear racks, baskets, bottle cage, bike locks, helmets and so on. You can get to know our equipment selection beforehand, but our staff will help you to find all the needed gear. 

If you are living outside of Helsinki region and have no Pelago partner in your city, no worries. You can contact us via e-mail at store@pelagobicycles.com and we can help you with your order.

Pelago Service at your service

A bike needs to be serviced anywhere from every 3 months to every 18 months, depending on the level of use. Well-serviced bike is safe and will last in use longer. The annual bike maintenance costs are also included as a taxable benefit.

If your benefit bike needs to be serviced, you can bring it directly to Pelago Service. If the bike has been bought from us, we will have your service information ready. If you have purchased your bike else where, can check your service deal from the leasing partner.
