New Feature: Permanent Health Insurance

At SimplePay, we listen to our users. That’s why when you asked us to build functionality to accommodate the special tax requirements for permanent health insurance, that’s exactly what we did! In today’s post, we’ll provide a quick overview of permanent health insurance and show you how to add it to your employees’ payslips on SimplePay.

What is Permanent Health Insurance?

Permanent health insurance or permanent health benefit contributions are schemes which will continue to pay your employees’ income if they are absent due to illness or injury. Even better, using a Revenue approved scheme provider allows you to benefit from tax relief.

You can read more about the tax implications of these schemes on our help page here.
