Belgium Gazettes Law For Tax On Securities Accounts

03 March 2021


Belgium has published in its Official Gazette legislation to introduce the country's new tax on securities accounts.

The Law introducing an annual tax on securities accounts was published in the Gazette on February 25, 2021, and is effective from February 26, 2021.

The tax is to be levied on legal and natural persons with investments of more than EUR1m in securities and derived products. It will be charged through taxpayers' securities accounts provided by intermediaries, on the holdings of Belgian individual taxpayers, whether or not they are resident in Belgium, and legal entities.

The law features a 0.15 percent rate, which will be levied annually. The tax will apply only where the average value of holdings was EUR1m or more during the year. A taxpayer's liability is limited to no more than 10 percent of the difference between the EUR1m threshold and the average value of their holdings.
