“[The estate tax is] an act of economic waste which is damaging to all.”

(Joseph Schumpeter)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Real Property

Belgium, particularly Brussels, has always attracted investors and property developers, now more than ever. Real estate is a global business today. Once dominated by local competitors, markets throughout the world now attract a range of international investors, lenders, occupiers and developers seeking cross-border opportunities and in search of optimal investment returns.

Since the transfer of real property is subject to a transfer tax of 12.5% (10% in Flanders), investors tend to look for alternative ways to invest in real property, via property companies or property funds.

Real estate transactions require careful planning taking account of a large scale of taxes: real property tax and VAT, income tax and inheritance tax.
