Company Incorporation Belgium

Belgium lies at the political heart of the European Union and it is the most cosmopolitan of all EU states. This may go some way to explaining its strong free-market approach to foreign investors and newly incorporated businesses.

The authorities impose relatively few restrictions on foreign companies operating within the country, and bar Luxembourg, it is the most prosperous country in the EU.
