I am trying to establish what it costs the council to employ staff over and above, or in addition to, their immediate salary and benefits. I am enquiring in particular as to the cost of all other expenditure on staff including overheads, administration, premises, facilities, taxes, support and other costs.
I would be grateful for any figures or breakdowns you can provide but would ask please first for the figure as a percentage of these costs in ratio to the direct staff costs of salary, tax and benefits. In other words if you spend 50p on these costs for every £1 you spend on direct staff costs (salary etc), I would expect this would be expressed as 50%.
The information you have requested is as follows:
The cost of employing staff over and above the cost of their salary, tax and benefits, when expressed as a percentage of their direct costs, is 23.5%.
