You are entitled to deduct VAT on entertainment expenses if the costs are directly related to your business. This applies, for example, when the entertainment is a natural part of business negotiations or staff welfare initiatives.
To be eligible for a deduction, your business must be liable for VAT or have the right to claim VAT refunds. Examples of entertainment expenses could include lunches and dinners, or mingles where only drinks are provided.
Below you can calculate how much VAT you can be refunded for entertainment expenses for lunch, dinner or light refreshments. You can also calculate how much you are allowed to deduct in your income tax return. The service cannot be used to calculate other types of representation costs.
The service is only available in Swedish at the moment, but we are working on updating the English version.
