Tax exemption for employer provided diagnostic COVID tests
The exemption was due to expire on 5 April 2022. However, immediately following the webinar, it was announced that this exemption has now been extended by a further year to 5 April 2023. This measure is designed to minimise financial burdens on employees, and National Insurance contributions and reporting requirements on employers who either provide their staff with a coronavirus diagnostic test or reimburse their staff for the cost of a coronavirus diagnostic test.
