What is Salary Sacrifice?

Salary sacrifice arrangements work by deducting an employee’s gross salary in exchange for a vehicle.

As the deduction is taken from an employee’s gross salary, it reduces the income tax and national insurance (NI) contributions they pay, and lowers your Class NI contributions as the employer. As a result, this minimises the cost of the vehicle to the employee because their gross salary pays for a large portion of the fee.

Benefits to Your Business

The Salary Sacrifice scheme is a tax and cost-efficient way of offering attractive employee benefits while reducing your business’ carbon footprint. We help businesses implement the salary sacrifice scheme, and then organise the financing and management of the vehicle.

As the vehicle’s contract is against the business and the contract monthly fee is taken out of the employee’s salary, it doesn’t impact their credit score.
