Providing employers the opportunity to help their employees with the tax return preparation

Preparing your personal income tax return has never been an easy task, even more it is often perceived to be stressful and time consuming.

The complexity of the tax rules in Belgium has increased dramatically over the last years and the 6th state reform (including regionalisation of taxes) has not brought the needed simplification for the Belgian taxpayer.

Therefore we felt the need to launch “MyTaxHelp” to provide employers with a tailored approach which they can offer to their employees.

MyTaxHelp can be tailored to your needs to allow you meet the objectives you want to achieve for your employees. It is thus highly flexible, but for your ease we have listed below a non-exhaustive menu as to what can be provided under “MyTaxHelp”:

  • A practical presentation on the most relevant items of a resident tax return, with useful tips in 3 languages (NL/FR/ENG). This presentation can either be given via a live meeting / online meeting (recordable) or just posted on your intranet for your employees to consult;
  • On site face-to-face meeting with completion of the tax return (i.e. 1/2h per person);
  • A “mailbox” where employees can send questions per email to an individual tax expert;
  • Ad hoc workshops on specific topics (e.g. family aspects, real estate, business expenses);
  • A call centre.

Contact your Deloitte GES contact or the specialist team (Geert Verberckt and Petra Verschueren) to get more information and plan a MyTaxHelp session for your employees.
