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

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.
