    Here/There you are/go.

    When giving something to someone, we can say either here you are/go or there you are/go.
    Which is more polite, here you are/go or there you are/go?

    "Here/there you go" is very informal, it's used between friends and family mainly.

    Do you mean "Here/there you are" is more polite or formal than "Here/there you go"?

    Yes, I should have said that.
