Medical Interventions Tax Exemption update

Share this article...

Despite not being mentioned in the Chancellor’s autumn statement last week, it appears that progress behind the scenes continues on the new tax exemption for medical interventions

The Income Tax (Recommended Medical Treatment) Regulations 2014 were laid before the House of Commons yesterday, and are due to come into force on the 1st January 2015.

So that is some much needed progress in the important area of absence and sickness management – and we now await an official update on the Fit for Work service.

I am indebted to Craig Gordon of the HR Bullets site who alerted me to the above progress.

Best regards
