2 Starting a business in Belgium Many companies recognize the need to expand their business internationally. But in the excitement of starting up a business abroad, it is easy to overlook important practical aspects. Business practices, legal, tax and accounting rules can differ widely between Belgium and your home country. With our focus on international organizations, Deloitte offers a full range of competencies that facilitate your business operations in Belgium. Belgium - The gateway to Europe Belgium is a prime location for businesses that are considering expanding internationally. 260 Million consumers - half of the European Union purchasing power - are located within a 375-mile radius of Belgium. The major industrial and population centres of southern England, Northern France, the Benelux and northern Germany are all within a 150-mile radius. Foreign companies and executives dealing with investment plans in Belgium may face a variety of considerations, including: • Where to locate? • How to establish a business? • How to acquire an existing business? • How to finance my Belgian activities? • Are there any tax or investment incentives available? • What are the employment rules? • What is the tax position? • How do I obtain a visa or work permit? • How can profits be repatriated to my home country? Getting started When setting up a business, you want to choose the best legal and tax structure for your particular needs. You want to be able to rely on a trusted advisor who knows the systems in your home country as well as in Belgium. • We will help you select the appropriate legal structure for your Belgian affiliate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
