Employee benefits - Tax-free and taxable benefits

Employee benefits are an essential part of a company's strategy to attract and retain talented employees. These benefits are wide-ranging and aim to improve employee wellbeing, motivation and loyalty. But what do these benefits actually entail and how can they benefit both employees and employers?

Types of Employee Benefits

Health insurance: Health insurance is one of the most common employee benefits, typically covering doctor visits, hospitalisation and medication. Dental and eye insurance is also offered by some companies, which can be a financial relief for employees.

Pension schemes: Pension schemes are a significant benefit where employers contribute to employees' retirement savings. This ensures financial stability after retirement and shows a long-term investment in employees' future.

Flexible working hoursFlexible working hours allow employees to customise their work schedules according to their personal lives. This improves job satisfaction and productivity by enabling a better work-life balance.

Company car / Free car scheme: Company cars are popular perks, especially for employees with long commutes or travel needs in their jobs. It reduces transport costs and improves comfort while travelling.

Employee discounts: Employee discounts on company products or services attract and reward employees, especially if these are products or services they use frequently.

Breakfast arrangements: Subsidised or free workplace meals save employees time and money and can promote healthier eating habits.

Maternity and parental leave: Extended maternity and parental leave schemes help employees balance work and family life, which can increase employee satisfaction and loyalty.

Christmas gifts: Tax-free Christmas gifts for employees are a traditional gesture that companies can use to show appreciation, as long as the gifts stay within the tax limits.

Taxation of employee benefits: It is crucial that companies are aware of which employee benefits are taxable and which are tax-free. This ensures proper handling and informs employees of the tax consequences of receiving the benefits.
