Christmas gifts for staff

The rules as to whether the gift is considered to be a taxable benefit in kind depends on what the gift is. As such, our general advice is not to give gifts to staff through your company.

If you provide gifts to employees you should be careful not to exceed an annual amount o£50 per person. If your gifts cost over £50 to the same person in a period of 12 months then you’ll have to pay VAT to HMRC on your VAT return.
