Staff Entertainment (including Christmas)

  • Money spent on entertaining employees is tax deductible and includes directors, partners and sole traders (where they attend a staff function)
  • However there is catch, staff entertainment is a taxable benefit in kind.
  • New rules from 6 April 2016 allow an employer to spend £50 per employee without a benefit in kind tax charge.
  • What about this Christmas then? For an annual event there will be tax relief for the business and no charge to employee if the cost is no more than £150 per annum per employee including Vat.
