Irish employers can offer employees a variety of benefits as a part of their overall remuneration package. These benefits can take the form of a cash benefit—for example maternity leave pay—or a non-cash benefit, such as the cycle-to-work scheme. The payroll tax treatment of each benefit varies depending on the type of benefit. Employees can also offer benefits such as Flexitime which do not have any tax implications but can still help attract and retain staff in a competitive market.

For a description of many of these employee benefits as well as an overview of their payroll tax implications, check out our Quick Guide to Irish Tax Treatment of Employee Benefits.
