Business entertainment is a popular, and often effective, way to build relationships with potential and existing clients. However, the tax implications of providing hospitality (both in relation to clients and staff who attend events) are often not understood or are overlooked by business owners.
This factsheet outlines what is meant by the term 'business entertainment' and identifies some of the key issues that business owners should be aware of in order to understand the tax implications. It explains the types of entertainment that may provide a 'benefit in kind' tax liability for employees, the kind of staff entertainment that is allowable for tax purposes and the way business gifts are treated for tax.
