My wife has a direct selling business and in order for her to market the product, she needs to try the products. Can she claim these as a business expense?

Hello,

 

I believe you can claim it as a purchase expense (line 8320 on T2125) since it is a direct cost of the product being sold. Even if you aren't holding inventory directly.

I hope this helps.

 

Sincerely,
