I know people in the Leisure Travel Holiday business now have to start paying tax on advantages like free holidays.
Anybody knows the rules?
I don't know the rules, but I would be astounded if the tax monster gave free holidays a free ride. Not when software on a laptop gets taxed, used of not.
Software isn't taxed if it's a legitimate business expense.
Any "advantage" such as free holiday is a benefit in kind which is taxable. This isn't new, it's been the case for years.
Really, J? So why the hell is it an itemised tax item on my wife's payslip?
Why the hell are you asking a complete stranger Mike? Does your wife approve of you discussing her payslips in public? Ask her accountant.
Do you know who I am, or who my wife is, J? No, so I could discuss her payslip in detail and nobody would be any the wiser. The question was pretty much a rhetorical one, J. It's merely to point out that despite you "correcting" my earlier answer, you are flat out wrong.
Engage brain before opening mouth and trying to score points, J. Difficult for you we know.

How does that thing with pots and black kettles go?
Oho! said the pot to the kettle;
You are dirty and ugly and black!
Sure no one would think you were metal,
Except when you're given a crack.
Not so! not so! kettle said to the pot;
'Tis your own dirty image you see;
For I am so clean – without blemish or blot
That your blackness is mirrored in me.
Maybe you could reduce your tax bill by swapping the wife Mike?
