HCI- Home Computer Initiative
Rockdirect is an approved supplier of products under the Governments Home Computer Initiative (HCI)
The Home Computer Initiative is a scheme designed to implement legislation, which promotes computer ownership across the entire working community.

The scheme is funded by a ‘Salary Sacrifice’ Program, agreed by both the employer and the employee, any employee that agrees to the salary sacrifice program can expect to have use of a full home computing system, but only paying half the normal price by receiving savings through both NI contributions and personal income tax.
