Re: Prescription cycling glasses

As you're all hopefully aware, there is a uniform allowance available to all CSOs which gives you an extra £140 off your taxable income.

Do you automatically get the £140 allowance or do you need to apply for it??

Re: Prescription cycling glasses

Where I've asked waiting for HR to find out if I can get them....I know we're entitled to free eye tests etc as we use VDU's for a large part of our jobs.

So you never know ....thanks for your input

Prescription cycling glasses

Do any of you know if we are entitled to prescription cycling glasses?
