Is a leasing agreement terminated in the event of theft?

As part of the all-round protection, every Lease a Bike company bicycle is covered against theft 24/7, provided that the company bicycle was locked. It is always replaced at replacement value and an object exchange is made in the existing agreement. As a rule, termination of the existing agreement is not necessary. Of course, this does not affect the lessee's special right of termination in accordance with the terms and conditions of the leasing agreement with a claim for compensation from the lessor at the settlement value of the agreement on the date of the claim. In the event of theft, a police report number is, of course, important when reporting the theft to us.

In which cases is there an underwriting loss?

The term “damage” includes all sudden and unforeseeable damage or destruction of the company bicycle, e.g. by:

●      Operating errors

●      Minor negligence

●      Accidental damage

●      Vandalism

●      Defects in design, material or workmanship

●      Overvoltage, induction or implosion

●      Storm, frost, ice drift, earthquake or flooding

●      Fire, lightning, explosion or implosion

●      Damage to engine or battery

●      Lack of oil and lubricant

●      Failure of measurement or control technology

Punctured tyres are not considered damage within the scope of the insurance policy. Tyre damage on a Lease a Bike company bicycle is always settled via the annual wear budget included in the all-round protection package.

Which parts are considered wear parts?

Every Lease a Bike company bicycle receives an obligatory all-round protection package with an individually selected annual wear budget. All necessary repairs to restore operational safety as well as repairs due to wear and tear are charged to this account. The following wear parts, among others, are taken into account.

●      Tyres

●      Inner tube

●      Brake pads

●      Brake discs

●      Chain

●      Cogset / sprocket

●      Pinion

●      Chainring

●      Bottom bracket

●      Light sources

●      Brake and shift cables

Can accessories be added later during the preparation of the leasing application?

Since the leasing application and the supplementary agreement to the employment contract have already been systematically created during the application process with confirmation of the bicycle and accessories and selection of the appropriate all-round protection package, it is no longer possible to add accessories at a later date.

Our service staff can delete the leasing application/supplementary agreement to the employment contract that has been created and you can then create it again with the desired accessories. Please contact us and we will be happy to assist you!  Contact

Do you offer specialist dealer training courses?

We regularly offer specialist dealer training.

What does the all-round protection include and what is covered?

Damage coverage

Our damage coverage includes all sudden and unforeseeable damage to or destruction of the leased property, such as by:

• Theft, burglary or robbery

• Operating errors

• Minor negligence

• Accidental damage

• Vandalism

• Defects in design, material or workmanship

• Overvoltage, induction or implosion

• Damage to engine or battery

• Costs for return transport to the point of issue in the event of loss of operational safety up to € 100

• Costs for a rental bicycle from the 2nd day. Max. € 20 per day, max. € 100 per loss event

Maintenance package

The employee chooses between the Basic, Standard or Premium package depending on the selected bicycle and usage. Each package contains an annual budget. This is used to pay for repairs that make the bicycle safe to use (again) as well as for any wear and tear during the period of use. 

Even tire damage, as this is of course not a damage event in the sense of an insurance-related damage, is settled using the individual annual wear budget.

The budget per package is:

• Basic: € 75 per year

• Standard: € 150 per year 

• Premium: € 200 per year

The Basic and Standard packages also cover the required UVV check per year. The Premium package includes a premium UVV check with extended scope of services outside of the required visual inspection. The costs for this are also settled via the allocated budget.

What is considered and included in the damage/theft protection?

The company bicycle must be locked with, but not connected to, a commercially available brand-name lock, unless it is physically located in an enclosed area. Protection is provided 24/7. Damage/theft reports are to be made directly to us using a form. In the event of theft, a police report is mandatory. (File number) Your employer as lessee must also be informed immediately in the event of a claim. You can fill out this notification of claim form on your own or together with your specialist dealer, who will be happy to assist you. 

What are the warranty periods for the company bicycle?

The statutory warranty is two years. After expiry of this period, damage e.g. to the drive or battery on pedelecs/e-bicycles continues to be covered by our all-round cover during the term. Warranty and guarantee claims are always handled directly by the Lease a Bike dealer from whom the company bicycle was purchased.

Can an agreement be terminated prematurely?

Premature termination of a leasing agreement is allowed under certain circumstances during the contractually agreed period of 36 months. Please contact us and we will be happy to assist you! Contact

What happens at the end of the 36-month agreement period?

●      The employee will receive an e-mail 4-6 weeks before the end of the leasing agreement informing him/her of the end of the period of use, which will include an offer to purchase the used company bicycle. 

●      If the employee accepts the purchase offer, he/she will receive an invoice confirming the taxation of the monetary benefit arising from the purchase in accordance with §37b para. 1 EStG [Income Tax Act] with takeover by us (flat-rate taxation by third parties).

●      The employee can pay the purchase price by bank transfer/direct debit.

●      Your company will also receive a copy of the invoice as proof that we have taken over the non-cash benefit in accordance with §37b para. 1 EStG.

If the employee does not wish to purchase the company bicycle, it must be returned to us at the end of the agreement via a Lease a Bike specialist dealer.

Difference between residual value, purchase price, market price?

There is often a great deal of confusion about the meaning of these terms.

Residual value: This is a purely calculatory figure in leasing and is often confused with the purchase price at the end of the contract term.

Purchase price: This is the price at which the used company bicycle is sold at the end of the contract.

Market price: This refers to the price that is paid for a given good at a given time in a given market for a unit of that good. 

In the absence of a current general second-hand market for bicycles/pedelecs, unlike for motor vehicles, the Higher Tax Authority has set this market price at 40% of the recommended retail price gross after 36 months to simplify matters and in line with the depreciation table. However, it should be noted that in connection with the taxation of the pecuniary advantage, a lower value can be proven in the event of a difference between the purchase price and the market price.

What happens if the continued payment of remuneration is interrupted?

In the event that continued remuneration is discontinued, e.g. leaving work due to prolonged illness, parental leave or other possible reasons, we are happy to work with you to find the best solution for you, up to and including an individual, cost-neutral return for you as the employer, provided that one of the following options is not possible or does not apply. 

This can be, for example:

●      Change of user: Offering the company bicycle to another employee for the remaining term of the agreement and taking all measures required internally for this purpose. (e.g. supplementary agreements to the employment contract, handover of the company bicycle, etc.)

●      Early termination of the existing leasing contract by mutual agreement for an important economic reason with possible takeover of the used company bicycle by the employee. Optionally, the employee also has the option of financing the purchase price via our FINANCE A BIKE product.

●      In the event of a change of employer, a transfer of the existing leasing agreement to a new employer is possible. After a credit check has been carried out, the agreement with all rights and obligations will be continued by the new employer and the company bicycle will continue to be provided to you for the remaining term.

Would you like more details about this? Please contact us and we will be happy to assist you! Contact

What is the expected purchase price at the end of the contract?

Lease a Bike offers the company bicycle to the employee on request at a currently expected purchase price of 10% at the end of the contract. We pay a lump-sum tax on the monetary benefit resulting from the difference between 10% of the expected purchase price and the currently set market price of 40% in accordance with §37b para. 1 EStG. Proof of the flat-rate taxation treatment by us is provided on the sales invoice of the used company bicycle. Thus, the employer is not required to make a lump-sum or individual taxation of the monetary benefit arising from the sale to the employee via the wages and salaries accounting itself.
