Meals & Entertainment

The new tax act has changed the deductibility of meals and entertainment for 2018 and forward.  The good news is that business meals are generally still deductible at 50% of the cost.  However business entertainment activities are no longer deductible. 

We encourage you to be proactive by identifying or reclassifying your expenditures in these separate general ledger accounts listed below.  Those expenditures may have previously been combined in an account titled Meals and Entertainment; however, it is important that meals are kept separate from entertainment.
