Trivial Benefits

Rewarding employees without tax, NI or HMRC.

How to Make Employee Benefits Relevant Again?

Many employee benefits are generous, but are so bland they fail to engage with those who you want to motivate. Trivial benefits make employee benefits more relevant and are a tax-efficient way of rewarding your employees. The rules are simple, there are tax and NI savings and it doesn’t have to be reported to HMRC.

My Staff Shop takes this ‘trivial benefit’ and turns it into a ‘significant benefit’ – stretching the value through the power of choice. Your trivial benefit is placed as “Reward Bean” credit in a My Staff Shop account for each employee. It is immediately available to be spent at hundreds high street and online retailers and hospitality providers; cinema tickets, garden plants, electronics, dining out, sports equipment or the weekly shop – just a few ways to enjoy your gift.

They will have a full 12 months to determine for themselves how they would like to spend this token of thanks and will be free to enjoy all the benefits of My Staff Shop during this time – who doesn’t enjoy making savings on their everyday spending?

A little about trivial benefits

Trivial benefits is a provision which allows you to give a gift to an employee – tax free.

HMRC allows employers to provide a tax-free benefit to each employee, up to £50 each gift, providing that:

It costs you £50 or less to provide

It isn’t cash or a cash voucher (something that can be directly changed to cash)

It isn’t a reward for their work or performance

It isn’t in the terms of their contract

And the best part is that neither employer or employee pays tax or national insurance. More information is available on the HMRC website here.
