VAT recovery on a restaurant bill

Frequently Asked Questions

During a business trip, I had lunch at the restaurant with one of my clients. Can I recover VAT on these meal expenses even if the VAT identification number of the restaurant is missing on the bill?

It all depends on the amount of the bill. If it is less than €150 without VAT, this detail is not mandatory to recover the VAT. Besides, if the restaurant cahier does not mention your company’s identification details, you can do it yourself. Beyond €150 without VAT, the bill must mention the VAT with all required details.
