Tax-deductible and tax-free naprapathy treatment


A lot of naprapaths has agreements with companies about a thing called “free preventing treatment and rehabilitation”. When a need like that is existing for an employee the treatment with a naprapath is tax-deductible for the employer, and tax-free for the employee. The responsibility for evaluating the need of treatment for the employee is put on the employer. This is a good way for employers to create opportunities for the employee to get back to work soon, or if the risk lies, to prevent sick-leave.

Gross wage deduction

Another great way to reduce the cost for an employee to go to a naprapath is creating an agreement with your employer to do a gross wage deduction. This does not cost anything for the employer, but it makes the naprapathy treatment a lot cheaper for the employee. This due to the fact that the cost for the treatment is subtracted before the tax on the salary instead of after. You can read more about gross wage deduction here.

Wellness grants

An authorized naprapath works with health care, but can also give health maintaining treatments according to The Swedish Tax Agency’s writings about wellness grants. The treatment is however limited since The Swedish Tax Agency called it ‘simpler massage’. A treatment which is funded by wellness grants is also obligated to have sales tax.
