Salary Exchange




"It was easy to select a new car through the scheme
and the information & support I was given made this a very easy process"

Salary exchange is an arrangement where an employee gives up part of their future earnings or bonus in exchange for a non-cash benefit.

As the salary is being ‘exchanged’ rather than paid from the gross amount, the employee does not pay Income Tax or National Insurance Contributions (‘NICs’) on the exchanged amount. In addition, an employer doesn’t pay NICs on the amount of salary exchanged either. The exchanged amount can then be used to provide the employee with a benefit, in this case a company car.

However, unlike other benefits such as cycle to work and child care vouchers, an employer is not legally required to offer the benefit to all employees and can exclude certain segments of the employee population where perhaps due to type of role, employee turnover rates are higher than other areas of the organisation.

Working with employers directly and via employee benefit companies and professional advisers we have experience in designing, implementing & managing car salary exchange schemes that are tailor made to suit the individual needs of our customers. An employer has the option of either passing the full employer Class 1A NIC’s savings to the employee within the monthly car salary exchange amount or retaining the savings. Importantly employer administration is avoided since all the processes and reporting is fully automated and outsourced via our web based ‘self-service’ portal.
