Exemption from withholding tax

Dispense de précompte professionnel

In 2003, Belgium introduced a programme for partial exemption from paying withholding tax for organisations employing researchers. This measure enables businesses not to pay the tax authorities up to a maximum of 80% of the withholding tax usually deducted at source from the salaries of staff involved in innovation projects and research and development projects.
The definition of research and development is based on the Frascati Manual and covers basic research, industrial research and experimental development.
And because we are so confident about achieving results for you, we work on a “no cure, no pay” basis.
