Most countries only allow companies to deduct expenses if they have an invoice from the person doing the work.

So at the moment I usually end up paying for articles via a personal account, when I'd much rather my company paid for them. That way they would be tax-deductible and only end up costing me half as much.

Same applies for design work and any other outsourcing found on forums etc

Is there a way round the problem? Do other people ask for an invoice from the writers doing the work?

I'm in France but knowing the way it works in other countries would also be useful.
