Default Homestay tax question

Hi All,
I'm hoping to stay with some Italian friends in Italy during a business trip this summer for 5 days. I think it's fair to make a contribution to the household expenses and activities etc. as I would otherwise be staying at an expensive hotel.
I would need to claim this as an expense for my accounting, so I i magine I would need some sort of receipt from them. How can they provide such evidence for me without ending up getting taxed for receiving money?
Any advice would be appreciated. Many Thanks!

Firstly, are you sure they would want to accept money from you for such a thing? I don't think they can give you a receipt because they're not a business. If you really want to contribute in some way, why don't you take them out for a meal or two and pay for that, keeping the receipt for your expenses.

Why not go to the local supermarket and do a big grocery shopping that would cover the 5 days food bill and then claim it back.
I do not see how your hosts can provide you with a receipt for bed and board.

That was my thought too, or fill their car up with petrol.
