Home Computing Initiative

leaflet for repsSTOP PRESS The Home Computing Initiative - tax breaks to help staff buy PCs - will come to an end on April 6th 2006. Apparently the government thinks that too many top rate tax payers were taking advantage of a scheme primarily designed to help the low paid buy their first computer. This is a disappointing decision but you should still be able to take advantage of the scheme if there is one in your workplace and you get your order in before April 6.

The most recent documents available on this subject are:

TUC welcome for signs of HCI rethink
TUC General Secretary, Brendan Barber, has welcomed signs that the Treasury is considering a replacement for the Home Computing Initiative, which was scrapped in the budget

A new government scheme makes it easy for employers to offer computers at a very good price to their staff. The TUC and Britain's unions are giving this our strong support.
