Expenses & benefits – Trivial benefits
This webinar is part of a series covering expenses and benefits. It has been designed to provide an overview of trivial benefits including what is a trivial benefit, what conditions have to be met to be exempt from reporting to HMRC and examples of trivial benefit scenarios. Subject matter experts will be available to answer questions.
Expenses & Benefits – Social functions & parties
This webinar covers the tax and National Insurance treatment of providing employees with annual social functions such as a Christmas party or summer barbecue. It does NOT cover reimbursing staff for the costs of entertaining or providing hospitality to customers or clients.
If you have any questions for our subject experts, please send them to team.agentengagement [at] hmrc.gsi.gov.uk prior to the webinars, including the title of the meeting in the ‘Subject’ line of your email.
These interactive webinars will be run on the ‘GoToWebinar’ platform. The organiser will run through how to ask questions on the day.
Feedback received from a recent Talking Points webinar indicates that many agents would recommend them to colleagues.
