Looking for a new car? Mersey Care staff are able to save money on a new car using one of our partners NHS Fleet Solutions. They have many special offers and they're updated regularly.

Please note for any members of the 2015 section, as the scheme uses your earnings throughout your career to calculate your pension, a reduction in gross pensionable pay will have a negative effect on the amount of pension built up in that year. The overall effect from participating in any salary sacrifice scheme would reduce the amount of final benefits earned.
For more information, please see our car lease policy.
Childcare vouchers are available to all Mersey Care employees through Busybees Benefits. Childcare vouchers can be used to pay for any registered or approved childcare (e.g. nurseries, child-minders, before and after school clubs and holiday playschemes) for children up to the age of 15 (or 16 if they have a disability).
The scheme is run on a salary sacrifice basis. This means that you elect to accept childcare vouchers in exchange for the equivalent reduction in your salary. The benefit of this is that you will not have to pay tax or National Insurance contributions on the vouchers. You can opt to take up to a maximum of £243 per month in vouchers and this represents a saving of approximately £80 per month for a basic rate taxpayer. The amount of childcare vouchers you are able to opt into is salary dependent.
To register for the service visit www.bbblogin.com/Register/FBQVFODL using the password: Oakie 78 and follow the step bystep guide to register.
Order the latest tech, computing, mobile phones, TVs, home appliances and much more and spread the cost through monthly salary reductions with no credit checks.

Salary Sacrifice Schemes facilitated by Vivup
The Trust has reviewed the updated HMRC and Vivup guidance and has taken the decision to close the portal for new applications with effect from 5pm on 21 February. All orders received by that date will be approved. The updated guidance means that the Trust will not be able to facilitate recovery of the tax payable for anyone applying for the scheme(s) in March as per the HMRC guidance. This means that we must close the scheme until the start of the new tax year on 6 April.
