Deduct the costs of stationery, ink, folders, etc.

100 %

Fiscal risk

Stationery is generally an obvious expense for your business activity

The cost of stationery such as pens, ink, files and other office supplies is 100 % deductible as business expenses. The condition is that you use the office materials for your business activities. You can also easily claim expenses for photocopiers, business cards, card index boxes, filing strips, scissors or punching machines as business expenses. If the expense is above the limit of 800 euros, special conditions may apply: The costs may then have to be written off and cannot be deducted in full immediately (so-called limit for low-value assets).

­čöĘ To recover VAT, do not forget, as (almost) always in Germany, to request a receipt or valid invoice. Without this, it is impossible to recover any VAT.
