Salary Sacrifice Key Facts

Salary sacrifice schemes provide staff with an excellent opportunity to gain a benefit whilst making substantial savings by agreeing to 'sacrifice' (or give up) a portion of salary due under your Contract of Employment in exchange for a service or benefit which has the same value as the cash sacrifice. When you join a salary sacrifice scheme you sign an agreement to vary your terms and conditions relating to pay. Savings for basic rate tax payers can be a high as 38% and for higher rate tax payers as much as 48%. Your savings are made because you pay less PAYE (income tax), National Insurance and Pension contributions.

A good example to provide is an employee earning £20,000 per annum joins the Bike 2 Work Scheme and orders a bike for £1,000. For the next 12 months, the employee agrees to sacrifice that £1,000 and therefore effectively earns £19,000 for the next twelve months and therefore pays less tax, NI and pension.
