Travel & Entertainment

Are The Costs I Incur To Entertain Business Clients In My Home Deductible?

Yes. If a business discussion occurs before, during or after the meal, then the costs of entertaining clients or business customers at your home is deductible. You should always keep a business diary listing the location, customers' names, business discussed and the date to substantiate your business expenses.
