  4. Hefty effective tax rates for Greggs bonuses

    Reality Check

    A branch of Greggs

    At Prime Minister's Questions, Jeremy Corbyn said: "Greggs are currently giving 25,000 workers a £300 bonus, but some of those workers on Universal Credit will only be allowed to keep £75 out of that £300."

    To work out how that could happen, consider somebody earning enough to pay income tax (more than £12,500 a year). On the £300 bonus they would pay £60 income tax and £36 of National Insurance, so £204 would go in their bank account.

    If they were receiving Universal Credit, that would be reduced in line with the taper rate, which means they lose 63p in benefits for each £1 they earn. So they would lose £128.52 of their benefits.

    That means that the £300 bonus would only have left them £75.48 better off.

    We spoke to the Department for Work and Pensions about these figures. They told us there were Greggs employees who would be in that situation, but not all of them.

    Others may already be earning enough to have stopped receiving Universal Credit or they may be earning little enough to have leftover work allowances (that's the amount you're allowed to earn before you start losing benefits).
