Open-a-Software-Company-in-Belgium.jpgBelgium is a regional software center in Europe, benefiting from an excellent location at the heart of Europe. Many IT and software companies have established their offices in Brussels and other cities. Proximity to other cities that have a well-developed IT/software industry like London or cities in the Netherlands makes Belgium an attractive location for start-ups. 
Investors who open a software company in Belgium need to follow a few key steps for company incorporation and observe the further requirements for employment and taxation. 

The software industry in Belgium

The software industry is well-represented in Belgium and it is one of the main domains of expertise in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry. Companies specialize in a number of software products, including but not limited to, gaming, fintech, media, mobile applications and other fields. Some of these types of companies offer both software development and consulting services.
The main reasons Belgium is a good location to base a software company include:
- excellent, central location in Europe;
- a talented, productive, and multilingual workforce;
- a good ICT infrastructure;
- support for R&D companies.
Our Belgian company formation agents can give you complete information on the industry requirements and the laws and regulations for setting up a company in the ICT industry, namely the software sub-sector.
Companies operating in this business field will generally be able to provide their services based on a regular business registration license, with no additional special permits and licenses needed however, investors will need to observe all of the current regulations for employment and business management in Belgium. 

Opening a company in Belgium

Company formation in Belgium includes a few steps, among which:
- choosing a type of company and an available business name;
- preparing the company documents;
- submitting the documents and forms for registration with the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises.
You can contact us if you want to open a Belgian company and need more information on the registration steps as well as the requirements for foreign investors.
