Do you use this vehicle a little, a lot, exclusively for business purposes?
The carwash is part of the costs associated with a car, just like maintenance, for example. Conclusion?
If you bought your car from 2018 onwards, you can deduct the amount of the carwash excluding VAT from your taxes according to the CO2 emissions of your car.
If you receive an invoice for your carwash, you can deduct part of the VAT: 35% if it is a mixed vehicle, 85% if it is an utility vehicle. In the case of a utility vehicle, you only deduct 100% VAT if you can prove that you use the vehicle exclusively for business purposes and have an alternative for private use.
