What is a Salary Sacrifice?

When an Employee agrees to give up part of their gross salary for an agreed period of time this is a Salary Sacrifice. As the Salary Sacrifice is taken from gross salary (before tax) rather than net pay, they will not initially pay any tax or National Insurance on the amount, however tax will be payable on the amount they Salary Sacrifice.

What schemes are available?

At TechBenefits, we will help you select which Scheme best suits your Company and Employees:

Gifting Scheme – A salary sacrifice scheme where the ownership of the goods passes to the Employee after the 30 day cancellation period has ended. Employees sign up to a Payment Plan for salary deductions to be made over a 12, 24 or 36 months.

Net Pay Scheme – This is not a salary sacrifice scheme so reduces the administration required. Employees sign a repayment plan that is deducted from their net pay over a 12 month period and they retain ownership of the products at the end.

Hire Scheme – A salary sacrifice scheme where your Employees hire the products from TechBenefits. Employees sign up to a Hire Agreement for salary deductions to be made over a 12, 24 or 36 months.

Are there tax savings?

The scheme works through Salary Sacrifice. There are no tax savings because it is classified as a Benefit In Kind. This means that the details will need to be reported on a P11d for each Employee that takes part.
