To increase the use of the bikes, the Dutch government has decided to make the tax rules on leasing a bike easier and more fiscally attractive. As of January 1st, 2020, you only pay 7% for the private use of a bike that you lease through your employer.
The new lease plan is intended for companies (from large multinationals to SMEs or freelancers) who want to inspire their employees to leave the car and travel to work in a greener, healthier and more pleasant way.
With the new bike plan you pay a 7% addition to the purchase value of the bike, and you therefore ride an electric bike for a fixed amount per month. In practice, if your employer pays for the bike in full, this means that you can ride an electric VanMoof bike for around €7.50 per month.
Hell yes. Firstly, you don't have to purchase an expensive company car for your sole trader because you can lease an electric bike for a relatively low amount. In addition, you can also use the bike for private purposes, provided that you use the 7% addition rule, and you cycle worry-free as all maintenance and theft insurance are included.
Very easily. Choose whether you want to lease privately or for business, fill out the form and we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss the options. As soon as you have decided which model and which term you want, we sign the agreement together and arrange everything else. Super simple!
No. You can take advantage of this plan with 1 bicycle. If you leave your information, we will contact you to discuss the details!
VanMoof Company Bikes are designed for the world's greatest brands, supporting our mission to get the world riding.
Our partner Friesland Lease arranges all contracts under 30 bikes. For plans of 30 bikes or more, you’ll lease directly from VanMoof.
This depends on who you arrange the contract with.
With the Friesland Lease plan, Friesland Lease owns the bikes. If you’re leasing directly from VanMoof, VanMoof owns the bikes.
No, once you sign the lease contract the 30 day policy does not apply.
If you lease from Friesland Lease, please contact them for any issues related to your lease plan.

Under the old laws, employees had to pay taxes on every kilometer they rode privately on their bikes, but service costs, insurance and repairs were deductible. Many companies did not want to spend time doing all those calculations. Fortunately that has now changed, because cycling is good for the environment, your health and your wallet.
To promote bike use in commuter traffic, the same laws apply from the 1st of January as those for lease cars. In other words: as a company you now pay a fixed amount each month and the employee pays an addition for the bike - only 7%!
This means that for an Electrified X2 (which has a market value of €3,398), you as an employer pay a contribution of €69 per month. The addition for the employee is therefore 7% of the market value, or €237.86 per year. Depending on the the tax bracket, the actual net costs are considerably lower. Based on the average tax rate of 37.35%, the employee pays €88.84 per year, so €7.40 per month. This amount is settled via the income tax.
The lease bike fits perfectly in a sustainable mobility policy. In addition to this, parking costs can be saved and research shows that cyclists are more healthy. Employees who commute to work by bike take on average 1 - 2 less sick days and are therefore more productive.
Perhaps the most important benefit for the employer is the fact that our own research shows that employees see a lease bike as a very attractive secondary employment condition. 70% of respondents said they would recommended their employer as a great place to work because of the VanMoof cycle plan.
Every employer can give their employees an untaxed allowance through the WKR. For example; tools, sports subscriptions or Christmas packages. In 2020 this allowance is 1.7% of the employees wage. Previously the bike was included in this allowance. However with the new bicycle scheme, the employer can offer a lease bike and use the WKR for other reimbursements.
From January 1st 2020, as an employer you can offer your employees a business bike through the new legislation. If your employee pays the initial amount, the bike does not have to cost you anything as an employer. Your employee will then still enjoy a huge tax benefit. You also encourage greener mobility and save on parking costs, fuel and mileage allowances.
