Changing your activities
The activities you carry out with your company are known to the Belgian authorities because they are registered in the CBC and with the VAT administration. They determine, among other things, which permits are required and which VAT rate applies. If you are expanding your range, or starting a new business activity, you must report this change as soon as possible. The CBC must be informed of this at the latest on the day you start the new activity. You then pay 90.50 euros per branch unit for which you request the adjustment. If you fail to do the registration or you do it too late, you risk being fined.
In addition to the CBC, you must also inform the VAT authorities of any changes in your business activities. Through icounter, you can quickly and easily make all these changes online
Please note that some activities require certain permits. For example, a permit from the Federal Food Agency (Federaal Voedselagentschap - FAVV) if you want to work with food or an authorisation for street trading if you want to offer products on the market. If your business is located in the Brussels or Walloon Region, a diploma or practical experience may be required for certain activities. You can take care of this via the business office.
Sole proprietorship or partnership
Do you have a company? Then you can only carry out the activities that are listed as objectives in the articles of association of your company (although you are not obliged to actually carry out all these activities). If your activities change, the purpose of your company will also change. The result? You need to get your articles of association changed. For limited liability companies, this requires a visit to the notary. For companies with unlimited liability, such as a CommV, VOF or a Partnership, you can pass on the change directly through icounter.
