Event support is a business grant and must be declared in full in the tax return for the tax year in which the support was granted. However, associations or registered religious organisations should not declare any part of the allowance corresponding to costs for tax-exempt activities.
You should report event support in box 42 in your VAT return.
Event support is a grant rather than a loan or form of payment respite. The allowance does not have to be repaid if a company is entitled to it.
If a company is not entitled to the allowance, or if an application contains incorrect information, all or part of the amount might have to be repaid.
If you have to pay back your company’s allowance, and you have already paid tax on it, you should claim a deduction for the amount you must repay. You should make this deduction for the tax year during which you pay back the allowance.
