Doing business in Belgium

Belgium is divided into three regions and three communities, each with its own set of rules when it comes to legal matters. This makes doing business in this country quite complex.

In order to allow you to concentrate successfully on your Belgian business, we take care of all legal matters and outline the legal-framework within which you can do business safely. In addition we can handle the complete administration that goes with it.
