The Services Directive in Belgium

The Services Directive is a European law that aims to make life easier for companies that want to do business in the European Union. To learn more about licences and permits, please contact an enterprise counter.

Here you will find information on all procedures and requirements for companies that wish to do business or establish themselves in Belgium.

You can request an enterprise counter to deal with these procedures on your behalf. You choose one of the recognized business counters. They will explain which documents you need to provide. The enterprise counter will charge a fee to apply for a licence with the competent authority on your behalf.

It is important to note that in Belgium formalities are imposed by different levels of authority. These formalities may differ depending on the region. In fact, there are federal, regional and community laws as well as municipal regulations.
