If you’re working as a company and you call on (sub)contractors who are active in the sector of construction, meat or security, you are bound by the requirements of the withholding obligation. The withholding obligation, also known as Article 30bis and 30ter, creates a lot of extra administrative work with a high risk of errors. So it not only costs you a lot of time, but it can also cost you a lot of money.
At SQLI we have developed a software solution integrated in SAP specifically to relieve you of this time-consuming administrative burden. Our payment interface (called C30 bis) automates the process of verification of (sub)contractors directly on the Web service channels of the Belgian Social Security Office (NSSO) and the Federal Public Service Finance (FDS Finance). This way you immediately know whether you should deduct part of the invoice when paying your (sub)contractor.
It simplifies and automates the entire verification and payment process:
If you do not comply with the control of the withholding obligation, you can expect a fine. That amount is equal to the amount to be withheld, provided that the debt exists at the time when you are making the payment. Did the debt already exist before your payment and did you not check the withholding obligation? Then you will not only receive a fine, but you will also become jointly responsible for the debts of your (sub)contractor. This can become a very costly matter!
Handling the withholding obligation no longer has to be an annoying task. Our automated software solution saves you time, while complying with Belgian legislation.
Our teams will be happy to tell you all about it!
