Home Computing Initiative

Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what estimate has been made of the cost to the public purse of the tax exemptions provided to employers as part of the home computing initiative. (235154)

The estimated cost to the Exchequer of the tax exemptions provided to employers as part of the home computing initiative was stated in the second table (Cost of Salary Sacrifice for Proposed Options—Option 1) of the full regulatory impact assessment ‘Exemptions for Computers and Mobile Phones’.

The impact assessment was published in April 2006 on the HM Revenue and Customs website at:
