Employment tax and benefits

Overview

An employer’s remuneration expense is often its largest cost. It comprises wages and benefits paid to its employees, the employment taxes and other statutory on-costs paid to the authorities and the expense of administering the entire process.

In the Employment Tax and Benefits capability, we take a proactive and global approach to the often ‘neglected’ costs and on-costs associated with remunerating a workforce. We identify ways to reduce an employer’s workforce liability without reducing the size of its workforce.

The capability brings together specialists able to support employers with
Optimising the efficiency of their payroll and administration functions;
Developing commercial and effective employee health care programmes;
Analysing employee remuneration and reimbursement data to identify inadvertent error or fraud; Assisting in vendor management reviews.
