Hi Folks,

If my Nissan Leaf company car purchase price is reduced by a government plug in car grant, do I P11d the full price or the reduced price after the grant is deducted?

A colleague has suggested I can pay each member of staff £20 towards an Xmas party (as long as everyone is involved and has the opportunity to attend one). Has anyone heard of this? Also, if it could be treated as a trivial benefit, should I take into account other trivial benefits that may have bee...
