Whether it is during a trip or during a meeting within the framework of the company's activity, managers are often required to incur restaurant expenses. Here is a reminder of the deduction of these expenses from the result, as well as the VAT.
First of all (and obviously), these expenses must relate to the company's activity: prospecting, lunch with partners, business trips, etc.
For business lunches, restaurant expenses are always deductible from the result. All you have to do is fill in :
However, for personal meals, the deduction is only possible if they are justified by a too long distance from the manager's home or if they are made during an assignment.
In practice, only the fraction of the price between €4.70 and €18.30 (i.e. €13.60) is deductible. These amounts are revalued by a few cents each year.
As regards VAT, there is a tolerance on the formalism of restaurant bills.
Indeed, VAT is deductible on these notes as soon as :
Above €150, the restaurant owner will have to provide an invoice that complies with the obligatory invoice formalism in order to be able to deduct the VAT. The manager will still have to provide the names of customers, employees or other guests.
