Belgium as a logistics hub in Europe ?
On the strength of an excellent transport infrastructure, a comprehensive network of warehousing providers, trained and multilingual staff and a central geographical position, Belgium has become one of the major logistics hubs in Europe. The Belgian ports (Port of Antwerp, Port of Zeebrugge, etc.), airports (such as Brussels Airport, Liege Airport, etc.) and the connecting North-South and East-West motorways make Belgium an ideal operating base for freight transport across Europe. Many international companies also choose Belgium as the ultimate link in their supply chain.

In addition to the efficient processing of goods, seamless administration and billing processes are also essential to facilitate logistics. For instance, it is paramount to register for VAT in Belgium, to make sure operations are monitored systematically in order to recover the VAT on purchases quickly, and to avoid the prefinancing of VAT on imports, etc.

Vandelanotte therefore provides all the services required to ensure proper tax administration in Belgium, such as:

- VAT registration in Belgium (in the form of direct registration or fiscal representation)
- application for ET14000 licence (avoid prefinancing on the import of goods)
- periodic VAT returns (monthly/quarterly)
- Intrastat obligations
- refund requests
- specific VAT consultancy relating to Belgian and international tax regimes
- VAT audits
- ...

Belgian branches or online shops selling goods to Belgian customers can also seek the assistance of Vandelanotte in organising their VAT obligations. Relying on extensive experience in international VAT transactions and a network covering 106 countries (thanks to our partnership with The Leading Edge Alliance), Vandelanotte is logically the ideal partner to take care of your tax administration and provide you with consultancy services.
