Employment regulations under the Luxembourg – Belgium DTT 

It is important to know that Luxembourg and Belgium signed an amicable agreement in March 2015 referring to the employment taxation specified under the double taxation treaty
The treaty stipulates that the taxation regarding employees is concluded in the country where the employment activity is taking place. However, it is necessary to know that the taxation can be decided in accordance with the regulations of the state in which the employee is a tax resident, but the rule is applicable only in certain conditions. For example, it can be imposed if a Belgian employee is working in Luxembourg for less than 183 days in a period of one year.
