Many Belgium provinces have subsidised buying an electric bike for personal or work use. Some employers also give you a small kickback per driven kilometer. In this small blog I’ve made a list of all the tax and purchase benefits for buying an electric bike in Belgium.
Most employers give you an allowance of €0,24 per kilometer you ride for your work. This is regulated on a national level but not all companies provide this.
If you are buying an electric bike as a company you get a tax reduction up to €410 per fiscal year.
Some provincials have different rules, check the local government website’s for benefits that are active in your region.
