UK employers want tax breaks for working carers
Leading companies call on government to introduce tax free vouchers for workers who spend time caring for relatives
Employers will todays call for tax breaks to be provided for workers who also
care for elderly or disabled relatives.
A group of leading companies, including KPMG, BT and John Lewis, will ask the
government to look at enabling staff to take wages as tax free vouchers, to
spend on services to help with their care work.
An ageing population will create a greater burden on the UK workforce, the
employers argue, and ‘innovative ways’ to support their staff need to be found.
