Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation

Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation
The Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation is the tax administration of the Brussels Capital Region.


The regional competencies have substantially increased further to the various reforms of the state, leading to a growing need for fiscal autonomy. By managing its own fiscal income, the region is in a position to develop a judicious fiscal policy and take fiscal measures. To this end, Brussels Taxation was established on 1 January 2012 and on 1 January 2017 it developed further to become a fully independent Public Service.

Mission and objectives

This administration had a very clear mission from the outset: on the one hand, to correctly implement the fiscal competencies and  and on the other hand to manage and collect taxes on a customer-oriented, efficient and effective basis in a credible, meticulous and responsible manner. To fulfil these tasks as well as possible, the government set the Brussels Regional Public Service Taxation the following strategic objectives:

  • The exercise of the tax service and administrative fines
  • The takeover and development of the tax service
  • To be the centre for documentation, advice, knowledge and data management in the field of taxation and documentation
  • The development of a comprehensive tax services platform;
  • User-centred quality of service
  • Staff development
  • Effective and sustainable operation
  • International Relations, European Affairs and Development Cooperation

Our task

The Brussels-Capital Region faces many fiscal challenges. There is a need, for instance, to revisit environmental taxes and consider moving from tax on work to tax on property. Brussels Taxation took over the management of the property tax from the Federal Public Service Finance in 2018 and the management of road taxes in 2020.

These ambitious aims called for an in-depth reform of the existing fiscal services, which previously fell under the competence of the Finance and Budget Administration. Brussels Taxation therefore invested heavily in a more efficient organisational structure, a new IT application, more efficient processes and procedures and administrative simplification.

Taxpayers in the Brussels-Capital Region must be able to reap the benefits of this transformation to a modern fiscal administration. So account was taken of an improvement in the provision of services, administrative simplification, investment in more online applications, a better information flow and the digitalisation of dossiers.

Brussels Taxation is expanding and developing rapidly. It has set itself the goal of becoming an example of a professional, strong administration. But above all, it wants to be there for Brussels taxpayers by communicating openly and treating citizens and businesses with respect.
