Working together and help you understand the options and processes when employing personnel in Belgium is our mission.

Implementing a Belgian payroll is not only necessary when having an office in Belgium. Even without an office on Belgian territory, the setup of a so-called shadow payroll to withhold Belgian social security contributions and/or declare monthly wage withholding tax is necessary.

Together, we look for the most strategic and pragmatic solution, whilst making sure your company adheres to all mandatory regulations. We help you drafting the right employment contract for your employees and see to it that all mandatory social documents are in place.

We act as your trusted counsel on which you can rely for legal advice on remuneration packages, work regulations, HR-policies and all personnel related matters.
Bringing you peace of mind is our goal.

Setting up a business in Belgium can be a challenge.
