Flexible benefits make it possible for employees to vary their pay and benefits to suit their personal requirements. Either they can change the mix of benefits they receive, without affecting their pay, or adjust their pay by taking fewer or more benefits. You may wish to fund all or part of the benefits.
There is no standard approach to flexible benefits. Scheme design typically uses the following components:
Employee pays for the benefit with a deduction from either their net or gross salary (dependant on the tax status of the benefit).
