Employee benefits are bonuses given in addition to your actual salary or wage. They encompass a wide range of perks and rewards, from major ones like equity stakes to more minor ones like free gym memberships. Aside from using them to attract top-level talent, employers offer benefits to enhance job satisfaction, reduce employee turnover, and improve overall well-being. Whether you’ve just started a new role or have already been at the company for years, it’s not always clear which benefits you’re entitled to, and to what extent. That’s why it’s always helpful to get guidance from a team of employee benefit specialists. At Lester Brunt, we advise employees from all walks of life on the benefits they’re entitled to and how to make the most of them. Our friendly and knowledgeable team is dedicated to providing clear advice, giving you the information to make informed decisions.

Less well-known is that children can also have a pension fund as soon as they are born – and setting one up can bring significant tax advantages. Even if your child is a non-taxpayer, they will still get basic-rate tax relief on contributions.
