Thanks for your question, I will do whatever I can to help you. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE.

Is it the business that owns the items?

Did they go through the books?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No, they were bought for the house.

Who paid for the card expense?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

i did


Expert:  UK-Justice replied 5 years ago.

In that case they belong to you.

If you paid for them then they are your property.

You have full title and ownership unless you gifted them, in which case they belong to the giftee.

Does that help?
