    Staff entertainment

    Hi,

    I claimed about 300GBP(for me & my wife) under staff entertainment in December. At that time, My wife was not working for my limited company. She recently joined my limited company. She is going to work for only two months in my company.

    How much she is allowed to claim under the staff entertainment given the fact that she is going to work for only two months & already part of my christmas party?

    Whether she can claim the amount only on prorata basis for two months ie 25GBP(2* 150GBP/12months)

    Or she can claim entire amount ie 150GBP. can I be part of that staff entertainment? then, she can claim 300GBP or 50GBP(prorata).

    Need your help....

    thanks,
    Babblu

      I go to a lap-dancing club for my 'staff' entertainment, phnarr-phnarr....

      Anyway, WGS, can't wait for the cavalry pile-on to commence!

            There is no taxable benefit where the company spends up to £150 (including vat) on each company worker for the annual Christmas Party. The dispensation also extends to one guest each (partner) for whom the company can also expend up to £150.

            The restaurant/place providing the function should be booked in your company’s name.

            The £150 figure isn't an allowance that can be offset against the cost of more expensive events:
            • if any annual event you provide costs more than £150 per head, there is no exemption and the rules in the section 'Other social functions' apply to the full cost of the event ie if the cost goes over £150 incl vat per person then none of the cost is allowable
            • if you provide more than one annual event, with individual costs below £150 per head but with a combined cost above £150 then only one of the two events is allowable.

            The cost of the can include the cost of transport and/or overnight accommodation. This must be offered/made available to all directors/employees (not be selective).

              Don't laugh I knew a US music journalist who takes clients to lap dancing clubs and claims it as client entertainment.

              But even he stops at trying to claim tax relief on the coke
              Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state.

              No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent.

                I suppose as long as they play music it's linked to his profession.....

                  As your wife is already your partner (I presume), then you've already spent the £150 per head.

                  P.S. It's your Ltd that claims it for her as your partner or an employee. She doesn't claim it as an employee.

                  And, as Graeme says, it can't be over £300. You say 'about £300'. If your Ltd has spent £301, then you can't claim any of that.

                    Did you spend that or just claim it? i.e. did it actually cost more?
