Hi Everyone:

I got a new accountant recently who isn't very familiar with PayPal/Moneybookers. However, she is surprised at how high the fees are for PayPal (I have a busineiss account and lose 3% to fees (no clue why that much) for each payment that comes onto my account.

Is it possible to declare theses fees as an expense for tax purposes? I'm in Poland, but any input will be appreciated.

They fall under the same heading as the service rates for cashing cheques or making money transfers.

Can be written off Mar 13, 2007

As already stated in the previous postings, these expenses can of course be written off. Any account expenses, if for an old-fashioned bank account or an online account, which arise when transferring money to or from your business are deductible. However it would be a good idea to avoid any private transfers connected to your PayPal account, and only use it for business.
