Employee Training FAQs

What is employee training?

Employee training is a work program that provides your staff with role-specific knowledge and skills to facilitate and improve their job performance within your business. For HR teams it plays a vital role in how you train, develop and engage your workforce and directly impacts your businesses retention, brand and growth.

Do employees need to pay staff for mandatory training?

If you earn the National Minimum Wage or close to it then your employer should pay you for time spent on mandatory training. This is because the pay received compared to the hours worked in the pay reference period might bring you below the National Minimum Wage. If you earn more than the National Minimum Wage, the time spent doing mandatory training might already be covered by your pay. If the training is not during your regular working hours, check your employment contract to see if you’ll be paid for the time spent on training.

You do not have to pay employees if they request time off for training or study that isn’t required for them to carry out their job.

If you’re an employee or worker and started working for your employer after 6 April 2020 your written terms must set out the training that you must complete, including training the employer does not pay for.

Does training for employees of limited companies offer tax relief?

When you put your staff of appropriate job-related training, UK businesses can claim tax relief on training expenditure for directors and employees providing the training is aimed at improving the skills needed in the business. Allowable training costs are claimed as a deduction when calculating taxable business profits.

Do you have to pay employees for training?

Legally, you do not have to pay employees if they request time off for training or study that isn’t required for them to carry out their job. However, if you request that an employee undertakes training that’s required for their job, then this should be paid.

Asset Management FAQs

What Are Business Assets?

Business assets comprise anything of value that a company owns, produces or otherwise benefits from. Examples of company assets include anything from cash and stocks through to inventory, cars, property, office equipment and computer hardware.

What is Asset management?

Asset management (sometimes also referred to as ‘asset monitoring’ or ‘equipment tracking’) can refer to the management of funds; i.e financial assets such as stocks and investments. In this context asset management is designed to help the company grow their financial portfolio.

Asset management can also refer to the management of tangible company equipment and belongings; computing equipment and vehicles, for example. This type of asset management tracks the location of assets as well as information pertaining to its condition and data such as warranty and price.

What are Fixed Assets?

A fixed asset, or noncurrent asset, is a tangible asset that a company uses in the production or delivery of goods or services, and expects to own for longer than a year.

Examples of fixed assets include:

  • Machinery
  • Property
  • Land
  • Vehicles

Fixed assets are often referred to as “property, plant and equipment” (PP&E).

What Are Current Assets?

The opposite of a fixed asset is a current asset. A current asset is something that is expected to be consumed quickly. Cash, for instance, is an example of a current asset. Company inventory is also a type of current asset.

Do I Have to Keep Track of Assets?

Every business needs to invest in asset monitoring. Effective tracking of assets ensures businesses know exactly what they currently own as well as its location, condition and value.

Failure to effectively track assets opens up the potential for criminal activity such as theft and fraud, and makes it more difficult to locate lost or misplaced inventory.
