    Bike Bonus 2020: who can request it and until when

    One of the bonuses set forth in the new decree is the Bike Bonusthe subsidy given by the state for the purchase of electric vehicles, bicycles, scooters and hand bikes. A bonus that has caused much discussion for its actual need, but which can be considered a good start to reduce excessive pollution in Italian cities with a large number of populations, such as the city of Florence.

    The Bike Bonus, in fact, is not given to all Italian municipalities. Only residents of municipalities that have more than 50,000 inhabitants, the regional capitals and the so-called metropolitan cities, which in Italy are fourteen in all, can benefit from the bonus : Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Genoa, Messina, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Reggio Calabria, Rome Capital, Turin, Venice and Florence.

    The subsidy is 60% of the purchase value for a maximum of 500 euros

    The voucher is retroactive to May 4, 2020, therefore starting at the end of Phase 1, and will last until December 31, 2020

    Every adult resident in the municipalities concerned has the right to a bonus for the purchase of only a bicycle, e-bike or micro-mobility vehicle.

    Bicycle facilities and mileage allowance provided by employers

    Employers, too, benefit from employees cycling to work. Employees who cycle are in better shape and are less prone to absence through illness. Moreover, companies may be able to save on parking costs when more employees commute to work. For that reason, the government is encouraging employers to provide good facilities for cyclists:

    A mileage allowance for cyclists: employers may pay cyclists a (tax-free) mileage allowance of up to EUR 0.19 a kilometre, the same rate available to staff who travel to work by car.Simpler tax rules on using a company bicycle for private purposes: Since 1 January 2020 the tax rules for people who use a company bicycle for private purposes is simplified. Each year, these employees will have to add 7% of the recommended retail price of their bicycle to their taxable income. This applies to bicycles, e-bikes and speed pedelecs paid for by the employer.

    LOCAL LEVEL

    The city of Utrecht offers two subsidy schemes: 

    Grants of 1000€ per vehicle for companies that purchase speed pedelecs for employees who live at least 10 km away from their workplaceGrants of 1500€ for the leasing or 1000€ for the purchase of speed pedelecs or electric cargo bikes by companies or organisations for their daily business use (at least 3000 km per year, excluding travel from home to the workplace by employees).
