Do you use Fapiaos to reduce taxes? (Beijing)

Was recently out with another expat friend, and noticed that he collected the fapiao after the meal.

When I asked him why, he said that his company has a benefit where he can use fapiaos from things like food / rent / laundry to reduce his taxable income.

I was surprised since I didn't know that the list of deductable items was so long. I currently only use fapiaos for rent.

According to this link ( Protected content ), you can deduct from the following items:

Housing allowance
- Food allowance
- Laundry fees
- Fees incurred by family visits
- Language training fees
- One-time expenses for moving
- Children's tuition

Is this normal? Does anyone else collect fapiaos for everything?
