Opportunities

Although Belgium can hardly be characterized as a low-tax jurisdiction,

it is nonetheless competitive as a situs for holding companies with neighbouring countries such as Luxembourg and the Netherlands, as well as with other European jurisdictions such as Switzerland, known for their tax incentives.

Moreover, Belgium encourages foreign industrial and commercial investment in Belgium by a number of tax measures. These tax benefits are supplemented by a host of non-tax incentives offered by the regional authorities.

Belgium has discovered that tax treaties can be an instrument to attract investments. Finance Minister Reynders has geared a number of tax measures to make Belgium more attractive, and he has been the driving force to sign new beneficial double tax treaties with the United States and Hong Kong. His dream is to position Belgium as the gateway for U.S. investors into the far East and vice versa. A combination of ten tax rules makes Belgium an attractive location for holding companies and group financing companies .
