Are you not located in the Netherlands, but would you like to inquire about any local Bike Scheme please don't hesitate to contact us. Anytime!

#1 Purchase the Bicycle online or instore yourself

  • Pick the Lekker bike that you want and pay it yourself
  • Give the invoice to your employer to receive your tax benefit
  • Life has never been so easy!

#2 Let the company pay for you

  • Pick and order the Lekker bike that you want
  • Put the address of the company in the invoice ‘address’  field in conjunction with our sales team
  • Pick your way of payment. Probably Bank transfer is the best option here.
  • After we received the payment from your employer we will send your Lekker bike to your address.

#3 Let the mediator do the job

  • Nationale Fiets Projecten (NFP), Bedrijfsfietsen Nederland (BFN) and Bike and Business (BaB) are examples of “Bike Scheme” mediators. Your employer may has decided to work together with a mediator, as they take away some of the administration work that comes with the Dutch Bicycle Scheme. In short how it works:
  • Still first pick the Lekker bike you want to have either online or instore
  • All mediators have a form that needs to be filled in by you, adding the products and accessories
  • Add all you want from us: Bikes, Accessories and more :)
  • Either pass this on to your employer or send it directly to the mediator
  • Lekker Bikes received a notification when payment has arrived, and will contact you directly
  • That’s it. Super easy. Please note it may some days, before we receive a confirmation.
