Senior Salaries

Local authorities are already required to publish, under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the following information with regard to senior salaries:

  • The number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000.
  • Details of remuneration and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000.
  • Employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name.

In addition to this requirement, local authorities must place a link on their website to this published data or place the data itself on their website, together with a list of responsibilities (for example, the services and functions they are responsible for, budget held and number of staff) and details of bonuses and "benefits-in-kind", for all employees whose salary exceeds £50,000.

 

As at 1st April 2019, Storrington and Sullington Parish Council has no employee whose remuneration is at least £50,000.

 

PAY STRUCTURE 

 

The code requires that local authorities must publish the pay multiple on their website, defined as a ratio between the highest paid taxable earnings for the given year (including base salary, variable pay, bonuses, allowances and the cash value of any benefits-in-kind) and the median earnings figure of the whole of the authority's workforce.  The measure must:

  • Cover all the elements of remuneration that can be valued.
  • Use the median earnings figure as the denominator, which should be that of all employees of the local authority on a fixed date each year, coinciding with reporting at the end of the financial year.
  • Exclude changes in pension benefits, which due to their variety and complexity cannot be accurately included in a pay multiple disclosure.

     

     Storrington & Sullington Parish Council's pay multiple as at 1st April 2020 is 1.6:1
