Following the government’s decision to alter the way in which employers can offer salary sacrifice schemes, from April 2017 tax benefits will be removed for anything from private health schemes to gym membership. ¬†Although there is some good news in that the childcare voucher scheme will remain, and in fact be increased from 15 to 30 hours per week from September 2017.

Employers will be advised to review all employee benefits and check the transitional arrangements.
