Employee volunteering is a great way of team building and we can always use help! Examples include painting and decorating, gardening, cleaning – the list is endless. Your team will be guaranteed a warm welcome with lots of thanks along the way!
If employees volunteer during working hours then businesses can claim a business deduction as if the staff were working during that time. All businesses need to do is treat the costs incurred to the business as a result of employee volunteering (e.g. the employee’s salary) as a business expense when calculating its profit for corporation tax purposes.
