Q. Are Gifts and Awards Taxable & Gifts versus Vouchers

A: Many awards and gifts are not taxable for example, The Revenue Commissioner offers tax relief on long service awards (which they define as 20, 25, 30 & 35 years of service). Awards however must be tangible to qualify ie. Camera, watch etc. Awards made in the form of cash, vouchers or bonus bonds are taxable in full. The tax relief on long service awards is separate and in addition to the annual €500 small benefit allowance per employee. Small gifts up to the value of €500 euro are also tax-exempt along with once-off non-cash personal gifts for weddings or a new baby gift. Companies can also claim back VAT on Gifts, but not vouchers, this is 23% on its own.
