Can we deduct $17 per meal for coproation? In T2, under meal & entertainment expense

I am doing T2 return and T1 return for individual. I want to claim Meals and Entertainment in T2 under simplified method $17 per meal. He is Long Haul Truck Driver. Am I allowed to do this?


This has to be done right. I have a trucking corporation which issues a T4 to one of the two shareholders as he is the long haul driver while the other shareholder is the corporate secretary and manages at the broker end as well as keeping the books. She signs off on a TL2 for the driver so he can claim his meals using the simplified method. The corporation doesn't eat any meals, the individual does; so I don't see how you can justify claiming these meals at the corporate level.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
