Over the past ten years or more, employment tax legislation has become significantly more voluminous and complex as HMRC has sought to counter a plethora of schemes used to mitigate income tax and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) payable on earnings.
Despite the complexity of the law which, in the main, has outlawed the most aggressive tax schemes, reducing employment tax bills remains possible via straightforward, remuneration planning techniques that are not only within the law but also within the spirit of the law.
