Belgium to reduce VAT in bikes and e-bikes sales

May 6, 2019 | VAT Updates

The Belgium Chamber of Representatives has proposed an important reduction regarding the VAT rates imposed to bikes and e-bikes in order to encourage their use. The rate would be lowered from its current 21% to 6% and the measure will impact in the health, climate, environment and economics of the Belgium people according to the politicians that have backed this proposal.

The rate change will take affect once the EU VAT Directive is amended to make it possible to reduce or even zero rate all mechanically driven bikes and electric ones.
