The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) does not currently offer a cycle to work scheme to its employees.

Nor does the FCO offer any other tax free benefits in kind to encourage green commuting. The same tax rules apply to benefits in kind provided to employees of Government Departments as to any other employee.
