Does the bike-to-work plan apply to people working from home?

Q Can you clarify whether the bike-to-work plan is available for remote workers? I used to work on site in Dublin’s Dockland pre-Covid-19, but I recently heard from my employer that I would be offered the option of long-term remote working if I wanted to continue. I was going to use the bike-to-work plan before the pandemic, but didn’t get around to it. Now I am worried that I will not be able to apply more as I am not technically coming to office for work.

A The current position of revenue commissioners seems to imply that employees who now work from home may still be eligible for the scheme. However, according to Barry Cahill, director of financial advisory firm Taxback.com, more clarification is needed on this point. Revenue currently states that you have to use your bike for the whole or part of your commute to work, and outside of that you can use the bike for leisure. However, it does not specify how much you must travel in the year or how much you must travel to and from work, which is a potential sticking point in terms of the scheme’s application for remote workers, Mr. Cahill said. The revenue also states that workers working from home can take advantage of the scheme if the cycle is used for work-related travel – things like taking office supplies or work-related equipment, etc. to the post office or city. Will definitely be counted among you. Here’s the favor, as well as the occasional office commute, if your distance from it is permitted.
