Belgian taxation

The main principles of the Belgian tax legislation

Belgian taxpayers are subject to several taxes on financial investments:

• The tax on stock market transactions (“taxe sur les opérations boursières” or TOB) - for more information, you can read: What is the Belgian tax TOB? or What is the implication of TOB for Birdee users who live in Belgium?

The tax on dividends.

The tax on capital gains generated by capitalization funds.

• The subscription tax (or tax on securities accounts).

• The reporting of accounts opened abroad- for more information, you can read: How to declare a Birdee account to the Belgian authorities?

Birdee pays the TOB on your behalf.

All other income must be declared when you file your annual tax return.
