Hi, I'm the sole director of a limited company. Since there's only me in the company, can I use the staff party allowance for myself and my partner for a nice meal out or stay in a nice hotel to celebrate? If not, how can I use this allowance to claim a 'party for one'? It's pretty lonely being a solopreneur, so hopefully we can make use of this somehow. Thanks.

If the function meets the criteria within you will be able to use it as an employee of the company.

Thank you.

Hello, may I ask a follow up question under this thread? I am in the same position - sole director/employee of a limited company. If I treat myself and my family (my partner+one child, so 3 people in total) for hotel stays or meals out, is the allowance capped at £150 for one person, or £300 for two people, or £450 for three people? Assuming other criteria are met of course. Thank you.
