Legal & Taxation Committee

The Legal & Taxation Committee is responsible for monitoring significant tax and legal developments in Belgium, taking into account relevant EU and international aspects. The Committee attempts to influence, in a constructive fashion, legislative and administrative decisions to promote the best interests of the Chamber's members and, more generally, the international business community in Belgium. 

Goals

  • To promote a positive investment climate in Belgium with specific regard to fiscal and non-fiscal incentives and, in general, to promote the continued improvement in the overall legal and tax climate for investors.
  • To promote improvements in various tax rules of a more specific nature which are of concern to business and to minimize the additional administrative burden imposed on companies by the introduction of new rules. 
  • To continuously improve the user-friendliness and speed of the daily interface between the Belgian tax authorities and its clients.
  • To promote further cooperation between Belgium and the United States, including the resolution of bilateral transfer pricing disputes and promoting the benefits of closer trade and investment relations.
