Lease-a-bike is the leasing brand of Derby Cycle and, since 2015, has given bicycle fans the opportunity to lease a bike through their employer. Because since 2012, the company bike has been put on an equal footing with the company car. This means that employers can offer their employees an individual bicycle, e-bike or S-pedelec as a company bicycle, thus increasing their motivation and health. The employers have no costs, little effort and save social security contributions. The employees only have to pay tax on 1% of the gross list price as a non-cash benefit and have unrestricted private use of the company bicycle. In addition, the taxable gross income is reduced by the leasing rate and the insurance contribution.
