Belgium Plans New Tax Rules for Expatriates
(Bristol, UK) - The Belgian government has issued draft regulations to modify the rules for calculating
non-resident personal income tax for expatriates, says Nair & Co.’s International Tax Team.
If the regulation is passed, the below significant measures may come into effect:
Expatriates having foreign travel exclusion of more than 25%, who benefit from Expatriate tax
concessions will no longer receive personal exemptions.
In certain conditions, individual taxes may be increased.
A non-resident taxpayer category will be eradicated i.e. the category for non-residents having a
place of residence in Belgium;
Companies in Belgium that have either hired expatriates or are in plans of doing so may consider
keeping a watch on further developments on the above proposals. If the proposals are passed, it would
have an impact on employers’ withholding tax obligations on payments to certain expatriates.
