A large accountancy firm has added super strength cider and lager to its benefits package in an attempt to help numb the utter drudgery of corporate life. Alongside pension contributions and private medical insurance, staff can now buy up to £1,000 worth of White Lightning or Kestrel Super each month through salary sacrifice without paying NI or tax.
‘Our people told us how dreadful it is to sit through two hours of pie charts, so we’re giving them the chance to get absolutely shitfaced every month in a completely tax-efficient way,’ said CEO Claire Ferguson.
‘Sadly it means we now can’t afford to offer childcare vouchers but if you drink enough Kestrel Super, parenting becomes much less of an issue anyway. Shitfaced is now one of our corporate values – along with Trust, Passion and seven more that I can’t remember.’
