Can I Claim Client Gifts?



I am forever being asked if you can claim gifts to clients. So here is the short answer.

You can claim a deduction for the cost of gifts bought for work purposes if you are a salesperson or property manager entitled to receive your income from commission or both commission and retainer. You cannot claim a deduction if you earn a fixed income and you are not entitled to earn a commission.

Gifts you can claim include:

  • a Christmas hamper

  • a bottle of whisky

  • wine

  • gift vouchers

  • a bottle of perfume

  • flowers

  • a pen set.

Gifts you cannot claim are tickets to:

  • the theatre

  • a live play

  • a sporting event

  • a movie

  • a holiday, including an airline ticket

  • an amusement centre.

These gifts are in the form of entertainment and are not deductible.

If this is still not clear, please don't hesitate to contact us today.
