    Flu jab

    Had a flu jab today.

    Something's vaguely ringing a bell that this can be put through as a business expense.

    Is that right?


    Oops - meant to post in accountancy!

      Yep, but just rang a bell as something the company could pay for, so why not?

      But my accountant says it's BIK, so won't bother.

      Although this link EIM21863 - Particular benefits: trivial benefits - examples uses it as an example of a 'trivial benefit', but no idea what that means.

        If it's a trivial benefit, then you can claim it without incurring a BIK. Point out to your accountant the specific HMRC manual which mentions is and see why she says differently. Worrying that they think differently, unless they have a clear reason why they are right and the HMRC manuals are wrong.

        There is a post on Contractor Weekly from 2011 about it, where "someone" mentions it in the comments

          Thanks. I did just send her the link, so will see what she says. I'd just read that article, but never got as far as the comments

          My arm hurts.

            Thanks for the link MS.

            It's explained how a company gave me and all their workers a bottle of wine as an Xmas gift. Others have said a company can't do this tax free.

              Christmas turkey is a nice one as well, which I've done in the past.

                Come to Yorkshire, only £9 and I got an extra discount on top too!

                I put this in the more hassle than its worth expense category, if it means I get an extra billable day out of it its more than worth while!

                    Surgery rang me yesterday to say that if I wanted one, just to make an appointment to go get one. Don't think I can be bothered, though.
