The above simulator is based on simplified assumptions and therefore, does not provide an exact calculation of Belgian income taxes. It aims at highlighting the benefits derived from the application of the tax regime for author's rights on the basis of similar assumptions in both scenarii, except the difference arising from the application of this regime.
Social security contributions are calculated at a rate of 20% of the gross income (without cap) and income taxes are estimated withtout any deductions, tax credit, and application of other relevant peculiarities attached to the personnal situation of the taxpayer. Income taxes are therefore estimated at a flat rate (while they are in principle computated according to progressive rates per scale).
Neither beelance nor uLaw can be held responsible or liable vis-à-vis the above simulator which should not serve as basis for any action or decision.
