As a team, they work to ensure that all home and work country tax and statutory reporting requirements are observed and adhered to through this solution.

  • Belgium

  • We localise your company so that it is registered for all the statutory purposes such as registration as a foreign employer and to run a local payroll and pay VAT, where necessary.
  • We localise you, the business owner, with the local registrations and the tax and social security registrations unless you can benefit under a Double Tax Treaty or Social Security treaty.
  • Where there are impatriate tax regimes, then we will register you and your company to benefit from all the legitimate tax breaks that are available to you to maximise your retention.
  • Where running payroll in your home country as well as the work country is unavoidable, we will apply for Early Double Tax Relief, wherever possible.
  • We will help you to avoid creating a Permanent Establishment where you are working, but where this is unavoidable, we will help you to ensure that local corporation tax and VAT liabilities are settled and, where possible, mitigated.
  • Because we are conversant with the taxes and social security in some seventy countries and we understand the interplay of international treaties, we can ensure that your financial affairs are in order in the country where you usually are tax resident as well as where you are working.
