Exemption from Payroll Tax

Do you employ talents to increase the knowledge of your company?

In 2003, Belgium introduced a programme for partial exemption from paying payroll tax for organisations employing researchers. This measure enables businesses not to pay the tax authorities up to a maximum of 80% of the payroll tax. This payroll tax is usually deducted at source from the salaries of staff involved in innovation or 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.
