Deduct your internet fees
Easiness to justifyAverage amount deducted€ 100 per monthFrequency1x per month
Internet fees are easily deductible, as the link to your activity is generally obvious. Who does not need the internet to work today?
Subscription for your office
If you rent a dedicated office space and you pay for internet separately, you can deduct 100% of the internet subscription cost. No questions asked.
Make sure that the invoice and contracts are well in the name of your business.
What about an Internet subscription at home?
In cases where you can justify that you work from home, you can deduct a part of your Internet subscription.
In such cases, internet fees are generally viewed as ‘mixed’ costs.
For self-employed ‘natural persons’ (eenmanszaak or personne physique) who work from home, the deductibility of your internet fee depends on how much time you work from home (i.e. professional use), with a maximum of 75%.
For instance, if you work from home 3 days a week, you can deduct 43% from your taxes and VAT. Easy right?
The tax authorities know that you probably also use your internet connection for your private life. So be honest and deduct proportionate to your working time.
If you have a specific connection for your office, separate from your family plan, you can of course deduct it 100%. But, be careful, be ready to justify why you have two subscriptions.
