Nevertheless, Belgium is a very dynamic country with multilingual, multicultural influences. In order to be competitive on an international context, Belgian authorities have decided to set up a Tax Reform (called ?tax shift?) which implies a reduction of the work costs and a reduction of the corporate tax level.
