Deduct the expenses related to VIP events
Different rules for access fees and reception fees.
During a VIP event (e.g. a sporting event), access fees are fully deductible if you can prove the advertising motive (i.e. the advertising must be visible). Otherwise, it will not be deductible.
Reception fees are in principle deductible up to 50%, unless you can show the promotional nature of the event. In this case, you can claim a full deduction.
⚠️ You can invite your clients to Roland Garros, but to deduce this, you will have to prove the advertising nature. It's not always obvious... So be careful.
