Tax Audits: What is the focus of the tax authorities, tips and tricks to pass the test
Based on recent practice and audit requests on equity for foreign executives, PwC would tackle this subject and provide best practice and actions to consider to avoid issues when the tax authorities review expat files.
Additionally, we will explain another issue that is attracting a lot of attention from the tax authorities. They have confirmed that there is a strong focus on all foreign entities that do not have an establishment in Belgium but are registered with the KBO ("permanent establishment" risk). Organisations may be liable for extra taxes so this is a key issue for all global businesses.
