Human Resource Manager
The base salary figure shown above is your base salary as at 1 April 2004. However, the other figures are based on the payments achieved and benefits you were eligible to receive during the 2003 calendar year (1 January to 31 December). National Insurance Contributions payable by us on your behalf have been excluded.
Your package has been valued by Hay based on annual pension costs over an average career (using Hay's method) and using typical costs for other benefits (as advised by Hay). The figures (such as the one for Retirement, Death and Ill-health benefits) may therefore be different to information previously provided to you by Smith Jones Ltd.
Although there is no legal requirement in the UK for a minimum holiday allocation, employers typically offer a minimum of 20 days' leave (excluding bank holidays). This statement therefore values the amount paid for any holidays over this 20-day minimum.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this statement as at 1 April 2004. If this statement is not consistent with your actual package, as outlined in your contract of employment, then the terms and conditions stated in that contract will prevail.
If you have joined Smith Jones within the last year, you may not have been eligible to receive all of the payments and benefits detailed above. However, it is expected that such benefits will be offered to you during 1998, subject to your performance as an employee of Smith Jones.

The valuation of your benefits (other than pay) is intended to illustrate the total value of your package and to allow comparisons with those provided by other employers; the figures should not be used for any other purpose. This statement does not take into account your individual family or financial circumstances or your health, and is not a recommendation for you to follow any particular course of action.
