Food, drink and uniforms to be hit by benefits-in-kind tax

Employees in the hospitality industry have been warned that they could be
targeted by HM Revenue & Customs because of the benefits in kind that they
earn.

Vantis consultant Peter Davies is reported to have cautioned that hospitality
companies could be falling foul of the law by offering benefits such as staff
uniforms, late-night taxi fares and food and drink.

He said that some form of crackdown had been expected for some time and urged
companies to review their employee arrangements.

‘The hospitality industry has been a target for some time,’ he told
Personnel Today. ‘This is another step in the revenue’s attempts to
bring the industry into line and one that we feel will be quite successful.’
