Providing morning and afternoon teas and light refreshments to employees (or their “associates”) at the employer’s business premises or worksite is tax-deductible to the employer. The same applies if the business provides such refreshments to visitors.
The Australian Taxation Office has ruled that this is not “entertainment”. If the business has no employees (for example, a partnership), claims for light refreshments are not allowed unless they are also provided to visitors.
