Boozy Team Build?

Allowable or disallowable business booze-up.

Didn't find your answer?

Could a team enjoy an evening down the pub for their annual team build as an allowable expense (budget per head £45)?

If they went out for a meal this would be fine but if they substitute steak for shots is this okay?

I can't see anything explicitly under Trivial Benefits rules disallowing this but I know just alcohol expenditure often falls foul of HMRC.

Many thanks in advance :)

I can't see why not as long as it is within the trivial benefit rules. There is nothing to say you can't drink £45 worth of alcohol or spend the remaining £5 on paracetamol the morning after.

Allowed surely! Who needs food?
