Employment Tax

Helping you attract, retain and reward top employees.

Our experts are here to help you navigate the challenge of effective remuneration planning. This is an essential element in attracting, retaining, incentivising and rewarding your employees and can be a key driver in terms of their motivation and their likelihood of remaining with your organisation.

Engagement and remuneration packages

We can advise you on how best to structure remuneration packages for employees living and working locally, and also for employees that are working abroad. We’ll share all of the available options with you, from the point of hiring (entering new employees into contracts of service), to contracts for service (which relate to contractors and freelancers rather than your own staff), to year-on-year retention and also in relation to the tax treatment of termination packages.

Our team of experts are also able to provide specialist advice on the tax and other implications of various forms of remuneration packages, for example, salaries, bonuses, performance related pay, benefits in kind, beneficial loans and share schemes.

Off-payroll working

Off-payroll working (IR35) roles for clients, contractors and their intermediaries has recently changed and our employment tax specialists are able to provide practical advice on the structuring of terms of engagement for employees and contractors in light of this. We ensure that we’re up to date on all extensions of these regulation so that we can provide you with advice that covers everything you’ll need to consider to ensure that you’re compliant but also as tax efficient as you can be.
