Whilst gorging in sheer information gluttony, it occurs to me that the employee has a benefit in kind.

I think we are reading far too much into the question. Tax isn't mentioned. The correct answer would surely be "yes, employers are allowed to buy things for their employees".

Depends. Does it now belong to the employee or does it still belong to the company?

So now you want to go into the detail of how you go about calculating the benefit? Let's scour the OP and extract from the veritable plethora the pertinent facts that can help us?

What’s the business? I mean, if it’s say, Fitbit Tester R Us Ltd, it’ll probably be a different answer for the BiK question that ...god... didn’t ask.

I have spoken to the OP and the fitbit was bought for the employee as a long service award that falls within the tax exemption. Only joking.

Isn't it weird how in the post title the first 'i' in fitbit doesn't have a dot on it?

Begs the question, what business are they in?

No. The question that begs itself is what are the employee's duties, but that's way too advanced on the information not provided so far.

Many people in this country are employees. Many of them have Fitbits. Many of those were gifts. Many of those gifts were non-remunerative.

(My "many"s get smaller from left to right, obvs.)

Not many came in tins though. The one piece of info we're actually given and I've still no idea of its significance.

Is it a trivial benefit ?

What do these gadgets cost ?
