Self Eligibility Check

Whether you’ve worked independently or as an employee, the key is to have a certain level of professional background. To initiate the process, it’s recommended to have approximately EUR 50000 or more of personal funds available for a small business, and more if your business requires more investments. Out of which 20000 must be deposited as capital into your Belgian business account that you can use later for your business, approximately 15000 will be the startup expense per person, and you need funds to survive in Belgium for the first year.
