Deduction of VAT. Tax authorities still do not trust parking in front of the house

  • Firms cannot deduct 100% VAT if employees park company cars in their own garage or in front of their house, according to the tax authorities.
  • The latest interpretation from the Director of the National Tax Information confirms this.
  • The argument that some industries require early departures or late returns when the company parking is closed or too far from the employee’s residence does not convince the tax authorities.
  • Courts have stated that agreeing with the tax authorities would render the provision for 100% VAT deduction for the purchase and operation of company cars impossible to apply.
  • There is always the potential for mixed use (business-private) of cars.
