Britannia Leatherbarrows’ staff take to two wheels

Oct 18, 2017

Leatherbarrows is now offering its staff members a government approved cycle scheme that allows them to purchase a bike through their wages. This means they don’t pay tax or National Insurance on the bike, which essentially gives them a third off the purchase price!  

Through the scheme, they pay for the bike in 12 instalments over the course of a year from their wages; the majority of staff will pay on average just £30-40 pounds a month. So far 10 members of staff have enrolled on the scheme.  
Leatherbarrows has also taken up the Dorset County Council’s Workplace Travel Grant, which has helped provide a secure bike park to keep the bikes safe, dry and ready to ride home at the end of a busy day. 
Assuming an average of only five miles per day each to and from work, the staff would clock-up 26,000 miles a year, that’s more than once around the world!
