Deduction for actual expenses

  • Print

If you choose to claim deduction for actual food expenses, you cannot claim deduction according to the rate. In other words, you cannot claim both.

How to register this in the tax return?

In addition to food expenses, you can claim a deduction for accommodation expenses. You can register the amount in the food and accomodation firleds in post 3.2.7.

Savings on food expenses at home

If you claim deduction for food expenses according to actual costs, you must subtract 87 NOK per day since your food expenses at home will be reduced. The amount of 87 NOK is the government rate for savings on food expenses at home.

Example
You spent a total of 200 nights in the commuter home during the commuter period.

  You have actual food expenses of 52 000 NOK
- savings on food expenses at home (200 days of 87 NOK) = 17 400 NOK
= total 34 600 NOK in food expenses

 

  Food expenses 34 600 NOK  
+ Accommodation expenses 79 358 NOK See which deductions you can receive for accommodation
= Total 113 958 NOK  

The total amount, 113 958 NOK, can in this case be registered in the food and accomodation fields in post 3.2.7 in the tax return.
