Year-end tax bulletin 2018

The tax bulletin for 2018, available below to download, gives an overview of the most significant tax developments in our home markets, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland, in 2018. It also highlights the main legislative changes that have been announced in these countries for 2019 and offers insights into ongoing EU and other international developments. We focus on developments and changes that could have an impact on international businesses.

Many MNEs are changing their structures to comply with the new international standards by aligning their legal and business structures, improving their transfer pricing documentation and preparing for full transparency of their tax position. Sometimes this leads to the concentration of existing functions and activities in a single entity. Often this then also leads to an overall increase of operational activities in our home market countries as a whole.

Other areas are gaining importance: practical solutions to reduce double taxation due to transfer pricing corrections, unexpected application of multiple anti-abuse rules, higher withholding taxes and new interest deduction limitations. Our tax specialists have broad experience with these challenges!
