Parties for employees

With the season for office parties fast approaching we thought it would be a good idea to remind you of the tax rules. The good news is that, unlike entertaining customers, the costs of entertaining employees are generally allowable against the profits of the business.

But what is the tax treatment for the employees themselves? Is it a perk of their jobs and will they have to pay tax on a benefit?

Generally, as long as the total costs of employee annual functions in a tax year are less than £150 per attendee (VAT inclusive) there will be no tax implications for the employees themselves. In considering this limit make sure you have included all the costs, which may include not only the meal itself but also any drinks, transport and accommodation that you provide.

If the costs are above the £150 limit then do get in touch so we can advise you how best to deal with them.
