Entertaining your employees is quite common at Christmas and other times of the year. It’s another tax free benefit for your team provided that certain conditions are met.
• It must be open to all employees
• It must be an annual event, such as a Christmas party or Summer barbecue
• It must cost less than £150 per person. If the cost is over £150 then the FULL AMOUNT becomes taxable and not just the part above £150.
• You can have more than one event per year to make up the £150 as long as the combined cost stays below this limit
