  1. Same tax rules apply in the UK. Not aware of any specific Gov crackdown here, maybe just H&B being careful or having been advised to take care. Or as someone has said, splitting out the tips to allow for those given on card which don't go straight to the person. I know of some professions where they are advised/told not to tip as it is generally accepted that they won't be declared, so it's effectively facilitating tax avoidance.
  2. Could be to do with not wanting to be indirectly facilitating tax avoidance. Tips are taxable income. If they take control of tips and then pay them with wages, they would then have tax deducted. As long as all tips are shared out and the company make no gain, that's OK I guess. However I do like to think I'm tipping a particular person for a job well done.
