I love working from home. In the time it takes the VPN to connect, I can get coffee and choose which edibles to get me through the day. I hope we never go back to the office.

Eh, both my current job and last job offered "company cars", (actually just construction fleet vehicles with passenger car plates where no one cared if I drove one home at night.). Drove my personal car instead.

Looks like I'd take the similar path with some of these - Netflix, but only the base package? No thanks, all my TVs are 4k.  WiFi extenders? Nah, I didn't cheap out on my router.  Smart speakers? All my receivers are bluetooth, why would I downgrade?

Tl:dr - all these sound like poor cop outs to forgo standard bumps in base pay and bonuses, which personally I'd actually want.

This has nothing to do with the tax rules that makes these taxable income instead of an untaxed perk.

Most people now just want cash if it is a taxable benifit.

Ha! Joke's on you, Daily Fail! I doubted the existence of company-provided perks and freebies LONG before I saw this article!

It's the equivalent of them ordering pizza for you once a month.

It reminds me of when I used to work at a company that gave cash bonuses at the end of the year, based on productivity. Then one year, instead of an envelope with a check for a few thousand dollars, we all received a catalogue of cheap consumer electronics and no-name brand housewares, and were told to "pick one of anything you like."

That was the last year I worked for that company.
