In order to encourage the use of bicycles and pedelecs (electric bicycles) as means of transport that reduce both pollution and traffic and at the same time encourage physical activity, the Minister for Finance has launched this scheme whereby a once-only grant of 15.25% on the purchase price of a bicycle is granted to eligible applicants.

What you'll get

Applicants will get 15.25% of the expense, up to a maximum​ of €85 for a bicycle and up to €250 for a pedelec (electric bicycle).​


Applicants should be Maltese residents and the application form should reach the VAT Department by not later than 3 months from the date of purchase. The original fiscal receipts/invoices and relevant documentation shall be kept by the applicant for a period of not less than 2 years from the date of application and produced upon request to the Commissioner for Taxes and Customs for verification purposes. The grant payment will be deposited in the bank account indicated on the application form.
