Avoid Getting into HR Hot Water This Party Season

20 Oct 2017 by Ellie Roach

With the festive season approaching, it seems appropriate to offer some practical tips for businesses on smooth planning of the annual office Christmas party.

 As a leading firm of chartered accountants and registered auditors based in Harrogate and Leeds, DSC provide bespoke accountancy and business advisory services to our clients and regularly run knowledge sharing seminars like this one. Inevitably, therefore, there will be mention of the tax and VAT consequence of the Christmas party and any seasonal gifts you might be considering for the team.
