Belgium is an amazing cocktail of delicious chocolate, light beer, radiant brilliance of diamonds, inveterate bureaucracy, bright oil paint and magic lace. In ancient times, French-speaking Walloons and Flemings settled on this land and determined personality of this amazing country. Belgium is not very touristic country. It is often due to the fact that in this country it rains all year round. Despite this, the European state is rich in historical and architectural sights, and the features of the natural landscape can involve you from the first sight.

Beach holidays can hardly be called a strong suite of Belgium. Warm summer weather lasts up to 3 months only, and even they can be significantly spoiled by the next cyclone. This is probably why the Belgians built a huge aquapark near Ostend with a full range of beach amenities in a gated complex, where the beach and the sun all year round. One interesting fact tells the best about the quality and level of recreations: the word “spa” came from the name of the city Spa, which is located in the east of the kingdom. Mineral springs and health centers correspond to the high level of everything that relates to Belgium.

Like any part of Western Europe, Belgium has a great potential for cultural tourism - almost every village has its own history, and the number of preserved medieval castles is simply amazing. Tourists from all over the world come to Europe to see such sights, and here in Belgium they won’t be disappointed because the careful attitude of the Belgians to their historical monuments and traditions is known to all Europeans. The castles of Belgium we can not mention are the border castles of Beleu and Bouillon, the capital city of Gaasbeek Castle in the capital and the Antwerp Castle of the Counts of Flanders.

Gastronomic tours are no less popular. Belgians prefer to cook with seasonal and regional products. You can see it in the difference of culinary preferences of the inhabitants of the southern and northern parts of the country. Belgium is the motherland of fries and the famous Belgian waffles, but most of all is famous for its chocolate and beer. Belgian chocolate is a national pride, the highest quality sweetness. Belgian beer in terms of taste is not inferior to a luxurious German drink. More than a thousand of sorts, recipes with an age-old history and various secret ingredients that give to beer a unique flavor.

The bulk of tourists visiting Belgium are business travelers and officials of various European organizations. Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium. There are many head offices of the European Union, NATO and many multinational companies in Brussels. So all the necessary infrastructure such as conference rooms, hotels, restaurants and cultural leisure, has been thought out and built at a high level long time ago. The tourism sector is far from the most leading in Belgium; the flagships are: engineering, metallurgy, mechanical engineering, food, chemical, textile, coal, oil and glass production. Also special attention must be paid to the Antwerp Diamond Exchange, which manufactures up to 80% of all diamonds in the world.

Business Information

Belgium is deservedly considered as the center of Europe and successfully combines stability and a high standard of living. Business in Belgium attracts businessmen from different countries as the business environment here is very favorable. The first you need is to open a bank account of at least 1000 euros. One more reason, it will not be difficult to find a room for an office. You need an officially certified certificate which is entered in the commercial register to establish an enterprise. A company can be founded by at least two people. Moreover, Belgian citizenship and residence in Belgium is not a prerequisite. To organize a company the founders must indicate the minimum contribution not less than 18 000 euros and deposit at least 30% of this sum at once.

The registration procedure is multi-stage and takes few weeks - this is of course a minus. Another essential minus is high level of taxation and insurance for employees. On the other hand, part of the taxes can be returned in the form of subsidies; some spheres of business can get 80% discount on salary taxes; you can apply for state benefits; you can get a loan from the bank for decades at a small percentage. To use such advantages you would better know at least one of the three main languages ​​(Dutch, French, German), although all the locals are fluent in English and actively change Dutch on it.

One more pleasant advantage is rare tax audits. Inspections will start when you plan to close the company, receive a large subsidy, or the company has an emergency. But in general, supervisory authorities warn, explain, and do not write fines. If the company in the first three years of existence correctly submits reports, it would not be checked at all. Belgium is a social country that fervently defends the rights of workers. The employer provides full insurance and the most comfortable working conditions - this is strictly monitored. The Belgians mixed the features of several nations, but nevertheless they can be called scrupulous, orderly, withdrawn a bit and eccentrical at the same time. Belgium created all conditions for a stable and prosperous business, and life in Belgium looks very attractive in general.
