You can deduct the cost of conferences you attend for your professional activity
Do you attend a conference or congress to acquire (or brush up 😉 ) your knowledge? Or simply to network and develop your network?
As long as the link to your professional activity is clear, you can of course deduct the entry fees for these events. That’s obvious, but you shouldn’t forget it, especially given the increasing cost of these expenses.
Don’t forget to deduct the cost of the entire trip.
If you are traveling to a specific location for a business event, don’t forget to deduct all the costs associated with the trip as well:
- Hotel costs, for overnight stays related to the event
- Restaurant costs, for the days of the event
- Travel costs: train, plane, taxi, bus, rental car
- Business gifts you may have made for your customers or partners
If you are a limited company (BV or SRL), don’t forget that you can replace actual expenses for short trips and restaurants with per-diems (more information here).
