New Belgian Crowdfunding Law: Requirements and Tax Benefits

6 Feb 2017 - 08:00

The crowdfunding law creates a specific status for equity and debt crowdfunding platforms (referred to as “alternative financing platforms”) and prescribes operating requirements for both alternative financing platforms and regulated entities (credit institutions and investment firms) that engage in alternative financing activities. Rewards and donation-based platforms are not within the scope of this law. 

The new law creates tax incentives for investors to support entrepreneurs and their businesses.
