Taxes, including personal income tax, expenses and limitations are reviewed by the Government in Belgium periodically and typically updated each year. Not that not all tax rates and thresholds in Belgium change annually, alterations to tax policy to support strategic economic growth in Belgium mean that the certain areas may be focused on to provide specific tax relief in Belgium or support growth in certain areas (overseas invstment in Belgium for example may mean reduced non-resident income tax rates in Belgium for a period).
