Section 12 of Finance Act 2014 introduces a new tax exemption, capped at £500 per employee per year, for expenditure by employers on recommended medical treatment that is intended to help an employee return to work after a period of absence due to injury or ill-health. These draft regulations set out the additional conditions that a recommended medical treatment must meet in order to qualify for the exemption. These conditions include the number of days an individual receiving a recommendation must be assessed as unfit for work, who can carry out such an assessment and the manner of the assessment.
