The following Employment Q&A provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A salary sacrifice arrangement involves an employee electing to forego (or ‘sacrifice’) a proportion of their salary or wages in return for their employer substituting a new or improved non-cash benefit, usually, but not always, one that attracts tax and/or National Insurance contributions (NICs) exemption.
The sacrifice may be made:
on an ongoing basis, every pay period, in respect of basic salary or wages, or
periodically when contractual or discretionary variable remuneration, such as bonuses, are in the offing
The legal effect of the change must be that the employee is entitled to a lower gross salary (or bonus) than they were before.
