Your fiscal benefits as a company

You are a CEO and you want to acquire some works of art in order to embellish your office by receiving interesting tax deduction? Artsper has concocted for you a small “guide of the businessman-collector" that will allow you to discover the tax deduction that you have the right to demand if your company acquires works of art on Artsper's website.

Conditions to the implementation of the taxdeduction

This deduction was created in favor of companies which purchase original works of art of living artists.
Companies beneficiate from it as soon as the goods acquired are exhibited in an area accessible from the public or the employees, except their office, during the period of acquisition and for the next four years. All works of art exhibited on Artsper's website offer the right to fiscal benefit since they are original works from living artists.

The tax deduction

The work of art must be among the company's immobilisations. The deduction amount is registered in a special reserve account. The price of the work acquisition can be deducted in an extra-countable way of the taxable result of the acquisition exercise and the next four exercises, by equal numbers. The deduction made for each exercise cannot exceed the limit of 5‰ of the turnover.

Example: A firm that ends its fiscal year on December 31st acquires in June 2010 two paintings for a total amount of 72,000euros. This company will have the right to deduct from its taxable result of the exercises of 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 the amount of 14,000euros in the limit of 5‰ of its turnover. A sum equivalent to the deduction operated needs to be registered in a special reserve account to the liabilities of the company's balance sheet.

Evidently, as usual, the legislator has foreseen everything in case the company would not have the artistic fiber anymore...Thus, in case of handover of the work of art, or also of withdrawal from the reserve account, the sum pertaining to the deduction made is reintegrated to the taxable result of the concerned exercise.
