17.06.08 | For some considerable time now, the Belgian social security administration (NOSS - National Office of Social Security) accepts that seniority premiums are exempt from social contributions, provided certain conditions are complied with. The Belgian tax administration, on the other hand, believed until recently that the amount of a seniority premium was usually too high to be considered as a tax-exempt benefit. In a statement dated 12 March 2008, the Belgian tax administration aligned its position with that of the NOSS.

19.02.08 | In 2008, 1 May 2008 marks both Labour Day and Ascension Day. In order to guarantee the legal requirement of 10 bank holidays granted to workers in the private sector, one day as compensation must be decided upon. For some time now, there has been a lot of uncertainty as to whether 2 May 2008 will be a public holiday or not. A Royal Decree dated 10 February 2008 finally brings clarity in this respect: As a general rule, 2 May 2008 will remain a bank holiday.
