Could you deduct your lunch?

The canteen, in this context, does not refer to the refectory of a school: it refers to the meals you take and offer to your team or partners, as part of your working day.

You will then typically deduct your delivery and take-away meals (e.g. Deliveroo, UberEats) as canteen costs.

As per deductibility, you deduct such costs at 50%, not 69% like for restaurants, for your income tax and generally do not recover VAT.

In Accountable, you find the Canteen category under Foods & Drink > Canteen & reception

A tad outdated but maybe important to know: in the context of a lockdown, our accounting partner indicates that if, in order not to break your productivity, you have a meal delivered to your door by e.g. Deliveroo or UberEats, then you deduct 50% of this meal - as a canteen cost.
