Giving gift cards as Christmas present to your employees? Beware, not all gift cards are tax deductible!

18th December 2018 |

Are you planning to give your employees a gift card this Christmas?

To be deductible the total given needs to be under $300 per employee and they cannot be classed as an entertainment type gift card/voucher!

What is classified as an entertainment gift card?

Entertainment gift cards are gift cards that supply recreational activities such as movie tickets, theatre/musical tickets, live music show tickets, sporting event tickets, club membership or can be used towards a holiday.

So remember, to be deductible they need to be ordinary gift cards which are redeemed for goods.
