Working through a service company

Question

Does anybody here have experience on working through a UK based service company?

I am in negotiations about a role in Brussels and am investigating the possibility of acting through a UK based service company. Does anybody have any advice? Upsides? Downsides? What are the Belgian tax implications? I would expect to be resident in Belgium, but also remain a UK taxpayer and return to the UK after two years or so.

That us extremely simple. If you intend to RESIDE for longer than 3 months in Belgium, you are required by laws to apply within the 8 days of your arrival to the commune where you want to reside, to get a Residence Permit.

As soon you are Belgian resident, you are rerquired to declare in the annual tax forms, your worldwide revenues, worldwide assets and worldwide bank accounts.

Italian café/bookshop Piloa.libri is open this evening (Friday) before heading off on holiday. It re-opens on August 21 for a literary evening and serving food and wine from August 27.

Be it your decision or your employers, your current working relationship is coming to an end. While terminating employment may feel as cumbersome as a break up, you can find comfort in knowing that many rules exist in Belgian...
