Colin Ben-Nathan, Tax Partner at KPMG, said:

“The Government has decided to press ahead with the removal of tax advantages for salary sacrifice, aside from pensions, childcare, Cycle-To-Work and following representations from KPMG, amongst others, ultra-low emission vehicles from April 2017.

“This will affect a large number of employers and employees, who will see a rise in their tax bills, albeit there will be transitional arrangements for existing schemes. That said, deciding what is salary sacrifice and what is a renegotiation of a package may be subject to some argument!”
