Let the Company pay for your eye tests and spectacles

By Stuart 9 years agoNo Comments

Where employees need to use computers or other screens in their day to day work, Companies can provide eye tests under health & safety legislation.  Whilst eye tests can be paid for by the Company, there is no taxable benefit against the employees.  Even better, should the employee need glasses these can also be paid for by the company, should it be shown that glasses are needed for work.

Whilst having their eyes tested for work related purposes employees mad add on additional tests, such as a test for contact lenses.  If there is no additional cost for this test, then it’s also tax free.  If there is an additional cost, then it’s likely to be less than that of a stand alone appontment and, as long as the employee re imburses the company for that part of the test, there is also no tax charge on the employee.
