Paying for eggs

15 October 2014

 

Readers may have picked up on the latest “perk” emerging in the USA, with Facebook and Apple both confirming that they will fund the cost of freezing eggs for female employees who decide to delay parenthood while they concentrate on furthering their careers.

Facebook apparently already pay up to $20,000 per employee, and Apple will follow suit shortly. But as yet there appears to have been no announcement or media comment on how the tax consequences of this funding will be managed.
