    Office Christmas parties - HMRC's view
    With the Christmas season upon us, it is a good time to look at the tax treatments for staff entertaining.

    Whilst the cost of entertaining customers and business contacts is not an allowable expense for tax purposes, entertaining staff is allowed so long as the entertaining is for business purposes, and not incidental to other entertainment.

    IR35 is a piece of tax legislation announced in 1999, which took effect from April 2000. The legislation means that the Revenue can tax some contractors as though they are employees of their clients.
