New temporary unemployment measures from 1 September 2020

2020-07-24T09:11:25+00:00

Employers can continue to use the Corona temporary unemployment measures but only if they have used the scheme for at least 20% of regular working hours during April, May and June 2020. If not, they need to use the regular temporary unemployment scheme which requires proof of loss of revenue. These new rules have not yet been published in the Official Journal but they are expected to come in the coming days. Source: SDWorx

This will be processed automatically on an employee's individual card. Source: viabelgium

Business Expenses

2019-03-05T11:16:21+00:00

We are often asked by our clients  starting out in business what they can and can't deduct as business expenses. There is no list in Belgium setting out what can and cannot be deducted. However, personal expenses are not deductible if they are nothing to do with work.  To discourage the practice, the Belgian government introduced a 309% tax on any personal expenses  booked as business expenses.  Now we are informed by the Belgian newsletter Astuces & Conseils that the 309% tax will not apply to work dinners judged to be excessive although they may still end up being rejected as business expenses.  In sum, you still need to be sure that you log your professional lunches and dinners so that you know who you dined with in case you are ever asked.

Register your NGO online – update Nov 2012

The online registration facility for ASBL/VZW registration in Belgium is now operational. The link to the new registration site is https://www.egreffe.be/evzw/fr/homepage for French and https://www.egreffe.be/evzw/nl_BE/homepage for Dutch. The process is not available for AISBL (international association) registration since a notary and a Royal Decree are requirements for this process.
