Event description:

Compliance and VAT of non-profit organizations will be reviewed, with some items highlighted:

Compliance for Non-Profits:

  • NPO tax return: What not to forget (company cars, withholding tax…), what needs to be enclosed, risk of being taxed as a corporation
  • Asset declaration: What to include? 
  • Forms 2xx regarding income paid to third parties (sub-contractors)
  • Publications in the Official Gazette (proxies, binding powers given to employees, directors)
  • Deposit Accounts through the trade court or National Bank of Belgium, 
  • List of members
  • Others (etc)
VAT for Non-Profits:

As regards to VAT special coverage of cost sharing will be presented: VAT is often a cost in the non-profit. In order to avoid this VAT burden (partial or completely) a cost sharing association might be a solution. Recently the Belgian VAT regulation regarding cost sharing associations has changed, and more in particular the conditions and formalities in order to benefit from a VAT exemption. During a brief session, the main principles will be further examined.
