  • The taxation authority published on May 29, 2008 a Circular which provides that if the visa number received by a company is mentioned on the fiscal form of the concerned healthcare professionals, the latter will not be taxed on the received amount. The advantage received to take part in the scientific manifestation will indeed automatically be considered as being a deductible professional cost (Circular nr. Ci.RH243/589.859 (AFER 19/2008)) (exists only in French and Dutch).The obligation to send a fiscal form to healthcare professionals exists since many years. The newness consists consequently only in an administrative simplification for healthcare professionals. If a visa number of Mdeon is mentioned on their fiscal form, they do not need to prove anymore that the amount mentioned on the form consists in a deductible professional cost, therefore untaxed. This circular is only applicable to independents. A similar circular is being prepared for wage-earning healthcare professionals.
