Would you like to finance your new NICOLAI bike through your employer or as a self-employed person? No problem!

Together with our partner JobRad, we offer companies and employees the opportunity to purchase service bikes. The company JobRad turns bicycles and e-bikes into service bikes. And this is how it works: Your employer leases the JobRad for you and you ride it – whenever you want! To work, in everyday life, on holiday or at sports. The monthly instalments are automatically deducted from your salary. Thanks to new additional tax incentives (0.5% rule), you can save up to 40% on your new NICOLAI bike compared to a classic purchase. The self-employed, freelancers and tradespeople also benefit from tax advantages with JobRad for the self-employed.

What is JobRad ?

JobRad is the service bicycle concept in Germany. Similar to the well-known company car leasing, JobRad works with bicycles and e-bikes. You purchase your company bike directly from your employer and pay a monthly leasing instalment, which saves you a monetary advantage. In addition to work, you can also use your service bike privately in everyday life and for sports. This is not only practical, but also environmentally friendly and keeps you fit.

General information for employees

How does NICOLAI JobRad work?

Your employer leases your new NICOLAI JobRad and lets you use it freely: for the way to work and in your free time. Your NICOLAI JobRad is insured and, if you wish, your family can use it as well (i.e. all persons living with you in the same household). The leasing contract runs for 36 months – as long as your employer retains part of your monthly gross salary and uses it to pay the leasing instalment (so-called salary conversion). This reduces your tax burden. The private use of your NICOLAI JobRad creates a monetary advantage and you save money compared to a direct purchase. Click here for the JobRad Advantage Calculator.
