VAT or value added tax is an indirect tax on the supply of goods and services. It is one of the main sources of income for the Belgian State.

Almost every entrepreneur is confronted with the legally required VAT obligations that are subject to specific formalities, the non-compliance of which may give rise to extensive additional charges and fines.  In addition, the VAT legislation is a particularly extensive matter in which the European VAT Directive forms the basis to which the national legislation of the member states must comply.
