Investment taxation for expats living in Belgium
Do you have a bank account and make financial investments as an expat in Belgium? We will offer you an insight into the tax consequences of those investments, depending on your fiscal status, in both Belgium and your country of citizenship. We will also help to ensure you are compliant with all tax regulations that might be involved.
Expatriates and their immovable property in Belgium

Trends and taxes in the Belgian housing market: an overview from an investment perspective.
This workshop will cover two sessions.
-First part: what are the tax consequences of buying or building your immovable property in Belgium? What’s the difference between a family residence or a residence for rent?
During this first session you’ll get an overview of the tax consequences but also advantages of your purchase.
-In the second part we examine why the Belgian housing market is still reasonably performing, and whether we would head for a property crash if the real interest rates were to suddenly rise.
During this second session you’ll get an overview of the current valuation yardsticks and overall return perspectives.
How to become a successful innovative start-up/scale-up in Belgium?
