The Cocof Parliament is preparing a conflict of interest against a measure in a bill containing various tax provisions, which is currently on the table in the chamber. Coalition partners PS, Ecolo, DéFI and the opposition party Les Engagés fear that the measure will have a negative impact on customs companies, which are already suffering.
The tax measure offers a progressive rate on the assets of nonprofit organizations. According to the authors of the proposal, which cites conflicts of interest in the French-speaking Parliament of Brussels, increasing taxes on real estate and means of production would mean an additional cost of about 3.5 million euros for custom-made manufacturers. section. 37,000 people work in this sector in Belgium, including 1,450 in Brussels.
Brussels parliamentarians are calling for the processing of the draft law to be suspended so that consultation can take place first. They demand that designated companies be exempt from the tax, as is the case for health care institutions. The PVDA has indicated that it will support this proposal. Remarkably, PS and Ecolo helped prepare the proposal. They are also part of the federal majority.
