3 Success Tips When Doing Business In Belgium
Healy Consultants, a global solutions expert, believe you should know these 3 tips if you are planning to setup in this reputable European jurisdiction.
LLC’s in Belgium require a minimum of one qualified director and one shareholder of any nationality. Consequently, a new business in Denmark can be 100% foreign owned.
Keep in mind that corporate shareholders are not permitted. The minimum required paid up share capital is US$8,600.
Setting up a new business entity in Belgium is easy, when done with a results-driven consultant, such as Healy Consultants - now with no requirement for personal travel!
About Belgium’s flexible tax burden
Corporate income tax imposed on both resident and non-resident companies is levied at 33%. However, SMEs with income less than €322,500 enjoy reduced rates. While there is no alternative minimum taxation, a “fairness tax” levied at 5.15% is levied on dividend distributions of large companies.
Tax losses can be carried forward for indefinitely. Under EU laws, there is no taxation on dividends paid to a parent EU company. Withholding tax on interest and royalties are levied at 25%, but through several exemptions and more than 90 double taxation treaties, the tax burden is significantly lowered. Furthermore, VAT rate is flat 21%, but can be fully exempt in certain cases.
About Belgium’s favorable logistics
Belgium offers great infrastructure and logistics capabilities. Their seaports lie in the middle of the Hamburg-Le Havre sea link, which is one of the busiest trade routes in the world. The port of Antwerp is the second busiest port in Europe, following the Rotterdam port, and one of the best in the world. Furthermore, compared to neighboring countries, Belgium rent and occupancy costs are significantly lower, according to DTZ’s Global occupancy costs report.
In conclusion, according to Healy Consultants (http://www.healyconsultants.com/
