You can pay your order through “Fietsplan” (Bicycle Plan) or “WKR” (Expense Allowance Scheme). All you have to do is find out exactly which scheme is in place and what your spending limit is.
Step 1: Ask your employer
Ask your employer whether you can purchase a bike within the Bicycle Plan or Expense Allowance Scheme and, if so, what your spending limit is. It is up to your employer to decide whether they will do the administration themselves or hire an intermediary such as NFP or FiscFree.
Step 2: Choose your new bike
Check out the range of bicycles we offer and select one. If it exceeds the maximum amount allowed through the Bicycle Plan or Expense Allowance Scheme, you pay the additional cost yourself. This amount can be paid directly to us.
Step 3: Payment
Currently there are three ways to pay for a bike with a Bicycle Plan or Expense Allowance Scheme:
- Your employer transfers the invoice amount to us.
- You select a bike.
- You submit your order/quotation to your employer.
- Your employer transfers the amount to us.
- You pay the invoice and submit it to your employer.
- You select a bike and pay the invoice.
- You submit the invoice to your employer.
- Your employer repays you.
- Your employer has hired an intermediary (NFP or Fiscfree) for the Bicycle Plan or Expense Allowance Scheme.
- Ask your employer how to proceed.
For all three options it is important that you should insert your order number in the payment description upon making the payment
so that we can easily find your payment.
Step 4: The fun part!
As soon as the payment has been completed by the employer / intermediary and processed by our administration (usually within five business days after payment) we will send you a link to a schedule. Now that the finances are in order you can select a date to come to our store and pick up your new bike or to have it delivered at home by PostNL.
Are any costs involved?
In most cases the Bicycle Plan / Expense Allowance Scheme does not come with additional costs. This has a simple explanation, you or your employer arrange the payment themselves. Unless your employer has hired an intermediary such as NFP or Fiscfree to take care of the administration. They will charge 15% administration costs on the maximum amount.
What does this mean in practice?
- If you buy a bike that costs EUR 1000 you must pay administration costs in the amount of EUR 150.
- If you buy a bike that costs more than EUR 1000 administration costs will not exceed EUR 150.
- If you buy a bike that costs less than EUR 1000 the administration costs will be lower, in proportion to the purchase price.
With a Bicycle Plan, will it take longer for my bike to be delivered?
The delivery of your bike will take longer if payment is made through your employer or an intermediary. Your bike will be delivered as soon as the price (and any additional costs) has been paid to us.
