Nectar can't give any tax advice, because tax laws vary by country, state, province, prefecture, municipality, and (sometimes) company type. Nectar recommends consulting with your company's finance department, appropriate legal or tax advisor regarding tax decisions.

We make sure to give you the reports needed for taxes. Regardless of where your teams are located, or what type of organization you're a part of, it's easy to download a report of your employee's redeemed rewards in Nectar. The report can be sent to your finance or accounting department to use for compliance with any applicable tax laws.

You can view and download this report from the Analytics > Financials Reports section if you are an administrator in your team's account. The report can be changed to any date range. Once your date range is set, you just click the 'Export to CSV' button near the top-right corner in order to download the report.

Some Examples

Although Nectar can't give any tax advice, we can offer some notes of how some customers have approached the question.

Some of Nectar customers don't treat gift cards as taxable income while others do. Some treat gift cards and other rewards as non-taxable as long as the total amount earned is below a certain amount per year (e.g. total rewards redeemed are less than $400/year).

These are just examples. Your finance department, appropriate legal or tax advisor will need to determine your specific course of action.
