A tax-deductible rental in France, Belgium and Luxembourg

As for real estate rent, the client company (or the liberal profession) pays rent - in the form of a license - to dispose of the works. The rental of works of art created by the artistic director of the BToB Classy agency is considered as an operating expense incurred in the interest of the company (fitting out of premises with furniture, professional training). This service is then subject to the common law regime for deductible charges (article 39-1 of the CGI). This means that the amount of the rental licenses is fully deductible from the taxable result of the tenant company and thus allows it to reduce its taxes (within the deductible limit of € 10,000 on January 1, 2020).


For example: a company subject to IS (or to IRPP for a liberal profession) can obtain a tax reduction equivalent to up to 33% of the rental price (depending on profits). In this case, if it rents a chat room for a budget of € 6,000, it generates nearly € 2,000 in tax savings.


The use of this service for the temporary acquisition of the enjoyment of works of art comes within the framework of the decoration and the fitting out of the offices (at account 613 of the general chart of accounts (furniture rental), or line 16 of declaration n ° 2035-A of the liberal professions), in the same way as the rental of plants, furniture or the purchase of elements for fitting out professional spaces.


The rent is considered as an operating expense fully deductible from the tax base provided that the works are exhibited in a place accessible to all the public of the company (meeting rooms, corridors, reception halls or reception offices).


The use of discussion spaces imagined by the BToB Classy agency is to support artistic creation and send a strong signal from companies in the dissemination of their values of creativity and openness conveyed by art.
