RAT and PCR Tests – Favourable Tax Treatment for Employers
Finally, some good COVID-19 news (at least on the tax front) for employers! Ever since the arrival in Australia of the Omicron variant in late 2021, the recommended test for detecting COVID has been the rapid antigen test (RAT). Indeed, for some employees, returning a negative RAT has been an ongoing condition of returning to work. As a result, there has been a massive buy up of these tests by both employers and employees – often at significantly marked up rates. On the tax front, relief is now at hand!
