Consultation on tax exemption for employers' health-related interventions

Close date: 16 August 2013

The Government consults on the tax exemption that will apply where an employer makes health-related interventions with the intention of helping an employee return to work from sickness absence as recommended by the health and work assessment and advisory service. Expenditure of up to £500 will be exempt from income tax and national insurance contributions. The consultation seeks views on the implementation of the exemption.
