Deduct restaurant fees

69 %

Fiscal risk

Do you like going to restaurants?

Your restaurant fees only count as such when you consume the food within the restaurant.

That's why food deliveries are not seen as restaurant costs: they fall under the so called "reception"-costs category. They are for 50% deductible for income tax and not deductible for VAT.

During a team meal for an event (let's say Saint Nicolas or New Year), these costs are 100% deductible for income tax and not for VAT. However, you do have to prove that (i) this only happens once a year, (ii) all team members are invited, (iii) with a minimal worth for every employee.

💡 We advise you to reduce your restaurant costs to no more than 5% of your turnover and to adapt to a certain consistency. This will help you to prevent a tax audit!
