Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have.

Your questions,
our answers

What are the benefits of the company bike?

Plusteken

We list the main benefits briefly:

  • Financial: A company bike is 40% cheaper than buying a bike as an individual. As a freelancer or employer, a bike is 100% tax-deductible. As an employee, you do not pay withholding tax (no VAA or benefit in kind) and no social security contributions, and you also get a bike allowance on top.
  • Functional: Say goodbye to traffic jams and stress! With an (electric) bike, you save time and can efficiently cover large distances to work.
  • Healthy: Regularly biking to work is good for your health.
  • Ecological: Choosing a company bike helps reduce CO2 emissions. You are not only making yourself but also the world healthier.   

What is bike leasing?

Plusteken

Bike leasing is renting a bicycle, accessories, and complementary services for a specific duration. With operational bike leasing, you get an (electric) bicycle with a complete service package. A standard bike lease lasts for 36 months. At Joule, you can choose a leasing term of 12, 24, 36, or 48 months. The package includes annual maintenance, damage and theft insurance, and a breakdown assistance subscription. You pay a monthly lease price for this. As an employer, you can then provide the leased bike to an employee.

What is the duration of a bike lease?

Plusteken

The standard duration is 36 months. With Joule, you also have the opportunity to enter into a bike lease for 12, 24, 36, and 48 months. You choose the duration as an employer or as a freelancer.

What's included in a bike lease?

Plusteken

With a bike lease, you get value for your money. What is included in the package?

  • A bike of your choice with optional accessories. At Joule, you can freely choose a bike from your local bike dealer or directly from Joule, with mobile service:
    • Joule Local: choose a bike from your local bike dealer. Joule collaborates with nearly every local bike dealer. An overview can be found here!
    • Joule Direct: if you want to enjoy a bike that is delivered, maintained, and repaired at your door, then choose a bike from the Joule Direct offer!
  • A service voucher for maintenance and repair. You choose your budget for bike maintenance and repairs: Basic (€150/year), Standard (€200/year), Premium (€300/year), or Advanced (€400/year). Not sure about your choice? The employees of Joule are eager to help you!
  • Comprehensive damage and theft insurance.
  • A 24/7 breakdown assistance subscription

What is the difference between bike leasing and bike purchase?

Plusteken

With bike leasing, you rent the bike as an employer or freelancer. Joule remains the owner of your bike. With a purchase, on the other hand, you are the full owner of the bike.

Can I lease my bike through the local dealer?

Plusteken

Yes! You can lease your bike through the local dealer:

  • You can find an overview of Joule's fixed partners via this link.
  • If your dealer is not yet listed, send a quote to orders@joule.be , and we will contact your bike dealer.

Can I choose which bike I lease?

Plusteken

Yes! You can choose a bike at your local dealer or via the offer with mobile service on Joule's website.

Can I lease all the accessories?

Plusteken

If you take a bike lease through your employer, you can lease all accessories within the categories: locks, helmets, and bike bags. Textiles or other gadgets are not applicable within a salary swap. As a freelancer, however, you can lease bike materials for professional purposes.

Is there a minimum uptake for bike leasing?

Plusteken

No. At Joule, every company is welcome, regardless of the number of employees. Even as a freelancer without employees, you can come to us.

Can I combine a bike lease with a company car?

Plusteken

This is possible provided that you regularly take the bike to work.

Do you receive a bike allowance through your employer? Then you will receive this for the days you bike to work.

Can I lease a bike as an individual?

Plusteken

Unfortunately, that is not possible. Joule bike leasing is an offer for companies, freelancers, and public services. As an individual, you can take out a credit or bike loan at your local bank.

What is a service voucher?

Plusteken

A service voucher is a budget that can be used for maintenance and repairs. You can choose which service voucher you want with your bike. The service voucher is included in your leasing price and thus enjoys the same fiscal and parafiscal benefits as the rest of your bike lease.

MethodService voucher/yearCategoryRecommended Kilometers
Basic:€150City bikes0-1000km
Standard:€200Electric city bikes with daily use1000-2000km
Premium:€300Daily use of speed-pedelecs2000-5000km
Advanced:€400Daily use of cargo bikes>5000km or heavy duty

A service voucher is not refundable after the end of the lease. However, you can use the remaining balance for additional maintenance and repairs or for purchasing bike accessories.

  • If you have not used up your service budget by the end of the first (or subsequent) year of your lease contract, this remaining budget will be added to the service budget for the following year.
  • If the lease is terminated early, any excess of the already accumulated budget will be charged separately.

How do I choose a service voucher?

Plusteken

Choose your service voucher based on two parameters:

  • Your bike category: for an electric bike, we recommend a Standard service voucher, while a speed-pedelec that is used daily will require a Premium or Advanced voucher.
  • Your usage; if you use the bike only once a week, a Basic service voucher will be more suitable than a Premium service voucher.

Need help choosing the service voucher? No problem. Our staff will gladly guide you through it. You can contact them here.
