Belgium To Fix Glitch In VAT Administrative System

On May 15, 2020, the Belgian tax authority said taxpayers have been contacted in error despite filing their value-added tax return in a timely manner.

According to the tax authority, due to a technical problem with its VAT administration platform, certain periodic VAT declarations filed between April 28 and May 12, 2020, were recorded as being late in the current account of taxable persons.

This glitch resulted in taxpayers being sent VAT account statements that included incorrect amounts or highlighted missing declarations. Some taxpayers will also have received letters.

The tax authority said that taxpayers in receipt of such notifications should "disregard these letters if you have filed a declaration during this period."

"We are doing everything to resolve this problem so that the people concerned are not penalized," the statement said.
