It's Buy Your Employees A PC Day In The UK

Over in the UK they have some complicated regulations concerning incentives for helping companies help their employees buy computers. They’re trying to make it easier with a set of guidelines that make the system clear. Companies can get a nice tax break for buying their employees home computers, which the employees can pay back over a three year period out of their salary. There’s no indication in the article as to what happens if the employee leaves the company before the full amount has been paid. This seems like a good idea – assuming that it’s the employees’ (and not the employers’) choice. Of course, some may cynically suggest that this is just a good way for companies to get their employees to keep on working while they’re home.
