OnTax Accountant Dunfermline Answer:
Taxmans View Of Gym's
Joining a gym is expensive in fact OnTax Accountant Dunfermline checked into this and found that the normal tax rules state that if the company pays for the membership, you will be taxed via Benefit in Kind taxes on the value of the gym membership. Further the company will pay national insurance on it but you will personally not pay National Insurance on it.
To get around the Benefit in Kind tax the rules state the "sports and recreational" facilities must be available to all employees, not generally available to the public and not on domestic premises.
