    And looks like you can only give them to employees i.e. director in our case, and not to shareholders i.e. the Mrs.

    Obvious to some people but going by some of the stuff we see posted on the forum it wouldn't surprise me if someone tried to give a voucher to their dog.

    So why not be a bit more direct with your statement rather than 'It looks like...?'

    Ordered my €500 gift card. Can spend it in the supermarket. Done.

    Just checked out the Irish Revenue guidance:

    Seasonal parties and other inclusive events

    You may decide to provide seasonal parties, special occasion meals or other inclusive events, such as sports days, for your employees. The cost of these events are not taxable BIKs, provided the expenses are reasonable and available to all employees.

    I think you can give them to family members but they are treated as if the director received the gift so it counts towards their limit.

    Not sure if it's company year or personal year though. So I'll wait till April and setup a standing order.
