What is a Salary Sacrifice?

A Salary Sacrifice, or Optional Remuneration Arrangements (OpRA) as they are now known, is a cost effective means of employees accessing goods or services.  An employee agrees to give up part of their salary in exchange for these goods or services, such as a car from Fleet Solutions ( or in this case home technology.
