They're laughing at us.

They continue to take the piss out of all of us because we continue to do nothing about it

It’s absolutely criminal how much taxpayer money is stolen from hard workers and wasted for the private enjoyment or enrichment of a few elites the world over. This is a microcosm of the issue. You want a Christmas party at your office? Work for a private employers who throws one or, if you are a public servant, pay for it yourself. Stop dipping into the average citizens pocket to pay for your shit, whether it’s a party or pork barrel political bonanzas for yourself and your cronies.

Can the poors expense it off their taxes as well? Asking for the rest of us.

You mean they're taking our tea taxes to throw parties? And we're not invited? My fellow Americans, it is time for a revolution!

This wouldn't be such a big deal if we weren't staring down the barrel of another decade of austerity.

In the good times, sure, go for it.

Now? Hell no.

Businesses claim theirs. I don't get why this is odd. This isn't for employees?

Employees can now do this too

If you spend £100 on a christmas meal you essentially get back 20%(or whatever the rate of tax is), you don't get the whole £100 back

Edit: Maximum amount is £150 per person

What about reclaiming tax on the cost of staff entertainment?

When it comes to your employees, the cost of food and drink - whether it's free-of-charge or provided at a subsidy - can be deducted for tax purposes under the following conditions:

An annual event is held, and is open to all members of staff
The cost per head is no more than £150 including VAT

I guess if you have to go and it's a work function that's fair. And the social pressure to go even if it's not technically demanded is pretty high. Seems reasonable.
