"Gifts" to prospects at Conference - How to account for the expense ?

Ibrahim Cisse's Profile


My company gives away prizes at conference (video games, gift cards, t-shirts,...). Should we simply consider this a Marketing expense, or should we categorize this as a gifts. Is there a specific Tax treatment ?

Thank you

If your gift card values are too high, you may have a tax reporting issue. Ask your CPA firm.
