Companies who assign employees to work in Belgium are now expected to use the LIMOSA declaration which is a system for notifying the Belgian labour authorities of postings.

LIMOSA declarations must now include the following additional information:

  • The nature of the services that the posted worker will provide ; and
  • The details of the posted worker including name, address, date of birth, email/telephone number of the person appointed to liaise with the Belgian authorities and their capacity to represent the employer

The appointed liaison officer must provide all of the relevant information and documents that have been requested to the authorities and be responsible for recording all information from the authorities concerning employment of posted workers in Belgium.

Certain documents concerning the posting including the assignment letter, salary slips and time sheets must be kept and provided to the authorities should they be requested for at least one year after the assignment end date and these may need to be provided to the authorities on request.
