Everything you wanted to know, but didn't know who to ask! The taxation of Benefits in Kind is one of the most complex issues that payroll personnel and employers have to deal with. The rules are confusing, sometimes apparently contradictory and often involve complex calculations, with hidden costs for both employers and employees.
However, the rules also offer opportunities which employers and employees can avail of to minimise their tax liabilities, which many are not aware of.

It will include numerous worked examples which will ensure that delegates obtain a thorough understanding of what is discussed. Revenue currently undertake BIK audits.
