With a (electric) bike, you save time that you can choose to dedicate to your work or private life. You stay fit and healthy. Last but not least, you are able to deduct it all, and more! From 2020, you will only able to deduct 100% of them. Note that biking clothes are 100% deductible too.
In addition, commuting between your home and your permanent place of work is not deductible. The company where you work on a 6-months mission counts as a workplace in that regard!
You deduct though, for example, the travel between your home and a customer. If you have to prove to the tax authorities the number of kilometers travelled for this purpose, use your appointment calendar and an Excel spreadsheet where you keep track of your travels.
VAT-deductibility is linked to the professional use of your bike. Some self-employed workers choose to rent or lease a bike specifically, and only, dedicated to their professional use, with Villo or Swapfiets.
