The Belgian Federal Ministry of Finance has just announced a series of measures for  all self-employed people (‘independent’) to help us through the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • The deadline for quarterly VAT submissions has been postponed until 7 May 2020 (instead of 20 April)
  • The payment of your VAT is automatically delayed by two months, without risking a fine, until the 20 June 2020
  • The payment of your withholding tax is also automatically delayed, until the 15 June 2020
  • The deadline for income and corporate taxes will be postponed by 2 months too
  • The submission of your client listing has been postponed until the 30 April 2020
  • The deadline for the intra-EU listing has been postponed until 7 May 2020

These delaying measures can also be combined with other extended payment terms that you may already be benefiting from or have applied for.
