Economic Recovery plan – Upcoming tax measures

Written by Nicolas de Limbourg 8 February 2013


At the latest cabinet meeting, which took place on 7 February 2013, at the initiative of the Minister of Finance (Steven Vanackere), a pre-draft tax bill was approved dealing with sustainable development.

This pre-draft legislation is intended to implement certain tax measures in the Economic Recovery Plan (Relanceplan) 2012, one of which is to increase the partial exemption for transferring wage withholding taxes for R&D, from 75% to 80%.

The proposed tax bill still has to be tabled in parliament.
