Health Allowance

At the University of Borås, our health allowance, or “friskvårdsbidragin Swedish, is a type of wellness and fitness activities benefit that means that employees can be reimbursed for some exercise and wellness activities, such as a massage, a gym pass, or horse riding lessons. Equipment, such as running shoes or skis, on the other hand, is not a tax-free benefit and therefore cannot be included in the allowance. This applies whether you buy or rent the equipment.

Contact HR Payroll if you are unsure whether your wellness activity is covered by the allowance.
