    Hi @Nikita

    Would you give a bit more details please? Who is claiming lunch? In what capacity? Is the travel an allowable business expense?
    Thanks

    From the VAT guide

    [you may claim] as input tax the VAT on meals you take when you’re away from your normal place of work on a business trip, but you cannot recover the VAT on meals which are not taken for business purposes
