Income Taxation of Trusts in Belgium

Trusts do not exist under Belgian civil law. However, trusts governed by foreign law are generally analyzed by applying conflict of law rules.

In Belgium, trusts can be subject to both income tax and gratuitous transfer taxes (by reason of death or inter vivos). This article only focuses on income tax issues.
