Tax & Legal

Advice tailored to business-owners

Good advice pays off in no time. Tax and legal advice based on a thorough knowledge of your dossier, combined with our accounting and financial expertise, so that everything runs more smoothly. The specialists at Vandelanotte ensure that your plans can always be realised with the lowest possible tax burden and in proper legal form.

Multidisciplinary team

The Vandelanotte Tax & Legal team is made up of lawyers as well as economists and accountants. The advice we give has therefore always been viewed from different angles - and for that reason, is always practical. Thanks to our knowledge of your accounting dossier, we can also be highly proactive in giving very specific advice and accurately assessing and calculating the tax and legal implications of your policy decisions.

Professional all-round guidance at every stage of your business

Right from the start, business-owners are faced with tax and legal obligations. The first choice to make is between working as a sole trader or as a company. If a business-owner chooses to form a company, then the tasks include drawing up Articles of Association, preparing a financial plan, registering the company with the relevant body and applying for a VAT number.

However, not only when starting-up your business, but also in the day-to-day management of it, you will have to process a large volume of tax and legal issues. And you can count on our assistance. We are able to provide you with step-by-step guidance, giving you clear fiscal and legal advice to help your business grow. We can be your first port of call for drawing up various agreements, helping with contract negotiations, advice and guidance on restructuring and liquidation, tax audits, etc. For tailored advice regarding direct taxes such as VAT, inheritance and registration taxes, you have come to the right place.

A Vandelanotte client therefore has nothing to fear from a tax enquiry. That's because we make it our job to ensure your plans are always realized at the lowest possible tax burden and with a proper legal settlement, with no comeback afterwards. If there are any areas of discussion, Vandelanotte will of course provide the necessary professional guidance.

We're here for you even when things are difficult

As a business-owner, you can run into choppy waters. For example, there might be a reorganisation, the application of the Continuity of Enterprises Act (WCO) or judicial reorganisation, or even bankruptcy; the list goes on. In these cases, you can still count on us for accurate and reliable advice.

And what about your personal protection?

Finally, behind every business is a person. That means that work also has an effect on the business-owner's personal life and often many questions arise about personal taxation, pre-nuptial contracts, health care powers of attorney, estate planning and probate forms. Even in these areas, we can guide you through the tax and legal details to work out a practical, viable and healthy solution.
