EU VAT registration - VAT in Belgium

VAT registration in Belgium

General Information:

Belgium introduced value added tax in 1970, while the main principles are contained in the value added tax code. There are also royal and ministerial decrees that contain additional updates. The Ministry of Finance issues regular rulings that contain detailed guidelines.

All of the above principles are based on the EU’s “VAT regulations” (directives). These include the rules and process for registering Belgian VAT, compliance, returns, Intrastat and other related applications.

VAT registration in Belgium for foreign companies:

Foreign companies can register for VAT in Belgium without having to set up a local company, i.e. you can register as a non-resident. There is no VAT threshold in Belgium for the registration of foreign entrepreneurs. However, an application for a VAT number must be received by the appropriate department no later than 30 days from the first taxable supply. This also applies when foreign companies make intra-Community supplies of goods. If you know that you need to register VAT in Belgium, do not hesitate and contact us and we will help.
