Delicard® gift cards and their high-quality product selections have been designed in accordance with the instructions of the Finnish Tax Administration, so that both the employer and the staff avoid any issues regarding the taxation of the birthday or work anniversary gift.

How to congratulate employees tax-free 

A gift given by an employer is tax-free as long as it meets the equirements for the tax exemption of employee gifts. According to the guidelines of the tax administration, a tax-free gift can be given on employees' 40th, 50th, 60th and 70th birthday, the wedding day and retirement, as well as various farewells. Also, 10 years of service with the employer or an equivalent anniversary of a long-term employment relationship is a legitimate reason to give the employee a tax-free gift. An anniversary gift needs to be considered as reasonable in order for it to be tax-free.
 
An anniversary celebrating the age of a company, such as the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the company, is also a reason accepted by the tax administration for giving a gift to the staff. A gift with the company logo can be a nice memory, but a gift chosen by the employee themselves is guaranteed to please the recipient.
 
Anyone thinking of an employee’s anniversary gift should also consider the value of a reasonable gift. The tax administrations states that an amount equal to a maximum of 1-2 weeks' gross salary of an employee can be counted as a reasonable gift. However, if the salary of an employee celebrating the anniversary varies due to, for example, a commission-based salary, the average gross salary of the previous 12 months can be used to calculate the required gross salary of 1-2 weeks. It is smart to consider the restrictions on the value of the gift beforehand so that the purchase of a staff gift goes according to the plan and without any hassle.
