Your clothing purchases are generally not deductible.
For income taxes, clothing purchases will systematically be rejected by the tax authorities. The only exception is professional clothing imposed, for example, by labour regulations. We will therefore think of the lawyer’s robe, the craftsman’s work uniform.

Therefore, clothes known as “city dress”, evening”, “ceremony”, “travel” or “leisure” are excluded. It’s clear: deducting your last suit represents a significant tax risk.

For VAT, the rule is similar: the deduction will only be possible if the activity carried out by the taxpayer requires the use of these specific professional clothing.

💡 Don't forget to also think about all the accessories necessary to carry out your activity: eye glasses and protection, construction shoes, etc.
