As employers look at summer incentives, we wanted to advise that the Small Benefit Exemption that previously only allowed one incentive to be issued per year was waived for 2020 and 2021 and continues for 2022, providing the maximum (cumulative) value of the two incentives cannot exceed €500.

So, in respect to the Waterford Shop Local Gift Vouchers, which we are encouraging you to avail of for your summer and Christmas incentives, you can gift your employees with vouchers a number of times throughout the year, as long as the value of all combined does not exceed €500.

The gift vouchers are a fantastic way of supporting the local economy, while also rewarding staff. Our team will process and individually label all vouchers in accordance with your requirements and we’ll even deliver them to you! Please consider supporting local this summer.

For orders, please email info@waterfordchamber.ie or you can order through our website here.
