Turkey - Belgium agreement in details

 
A double tax agreement between Turkey and Belgium was necessary to avoid the double taxation of incomes, dividends, royalties, interests or gains related to the immovable properties. Moreover, it is good to know that the companies will be levied on profits only in the country of residency, being exempt from taxation in Turkey. Companies or natural persons must make proof of the paid taxes in the home country, in our case, in Belgium or Turkey. Having a double tax convention also means avoiding all kinds of tax frauds. Besides that, such convention will help investors to enter the Turkish market and benefit from the attractive business background. We remind that our lawyers in Turkey are able to offer legal assistance in taxation matters for your company in the country.
 

Tax covered by the Turkey - Belgium double tax agreement 

 

The dividends paid by a Belgium company in Turkey are taxed at a 5% rate. Regarding the royalties, the rate is settled at 10%. The important double tax agreement between Turkey and Belgium prevents the fiscal evasion and also protects the double taxation of the revenues paid in one of the contracting states. The fruitful collaboration between Turkey and Belgium extends in numerous areas of interest, which is why this significant convention was mandatory.
