80% exemption from withholding tax on the wages of researches

/ SERVICES

This is how we can help

If you, as an employer from the private sector or knowledge institutions, employ researchers, you can be exempted for 80% of the withholding tax owed on their wages. This rule has been created with help of the Belgian Science Policy office, Belspo and also applies to bachelor’s degrees, where you can obtain an exemption of 80%, limited to 50% of the total amount of the exemption as applied to other employees with a specific master’s and / or doctor’s degree. For certain positions, the exemption must be applied pro-rate in proportion to the time that the employees concerned actually spent on research. These are assistant researchers and post-doctoral researchers at universities, colleges and recognized scientific institutions. In addition, the projects or programs are only eligible if they have been registered with the Federal Public Planning Service Science Policy. You can register by identifying the payer of the withholding tax, describing the project or program to which the investigation applies, and indicating the expected start and end dates.
