Deduct steaming and music costs
Is Spotify deductible?
It is possible to deduct your subscriptions to music streaming services such as Spotify, Soundcloud, AppleMusic and others, on one condition: you need to use the service as part of your work and you need to be able to prove it (for example, no firewall that prevents Spotify from being at the office) , etc.). The services must be an addition to your company.
⚠️ You need to be able to justify the costs: so do not try to argue that you need a Netflix subscription to be able to relax after work.
If the use is mixed, both private and professional, it is necessary to carefully state what the professional use is. For example, if you work 3 days a week, you apply a ratio of 3 to 7 to the cost of the subscription.
Attention, in the context of SABAM and copyright fees, it is important to note that the streaming services are intended for private use only: places that are publicly accessible, such as shops, restaurants, cafes, cinemas or commercial buildings, cannot use streaming services...
