Flowers for an employee as tax-deductable costs for an employer

Director of the Tax Chamber in Warsaw on June 1, 2015 issued an individual interpretation on purchase by an employer flowers and minor, symbolic gifts on the occasion of the jubilee or retirement for his employees.

The tax authority agreed with the company’s point of view that such behavior represents respect for an employee, remembrance, acknowledgement for his/her work, attitude and contribution to the development of the company and as a result it strengthens ties between employees and it motivates them. Ultimately, in consequences it indirectly influences level of the company’s income.

As a result it is possible to qualify those expenses as tax-deductable costs for an employer.

Interpretation no: IPPB6/4510-52/15-2/AK
