This scheme provides a tax-friendly opportunity to purchase a bicycle, including bicycle insurance, maintenance and accessories. Maastricht University (UM) hopes this will encourage bicycle commuting from home to work, and between the UM locations.
[Explanation below the flowchart]
Which forms should I submit to my HR department (within two months)?
- If you live more than 15 kilometres from your work location, a personal statement declaring that you will use the bicycle for commuting more than half of your working days
- The National Bike Projects order form (in Dutch only) or the original invoice
- The Maastricht University Bicycle Scheme declaration (with or without UM contribution)
- The application form for the use of employment conditions
To make sure your forms can be processed accurately and quickly, do not forget to sign them!
Before purchasing a bike, please read the full text of the Maastricht University Bicycle Scheme.
