Salonized is now a local service provider in Belgium, simplifying the VAT handling for your salon

Updated over a week ago

We have some news about your Salonized invoices. Don't worry, we'll break it down step-by-step so you know exactly what's going on.

What's happening?

Starting September 1, 2023, we will start including VAT on your invoices. The VAT rate will now be 21%, which is the standard rate in Belgium. The updated VAT rate will be automatically reflected on all your next invoices.

What changes for you?

The total amount to be paid in your invoice will now be the sum of your Salonized subscription cost + 21% VAT rate.

Good news, this is not a price increase! If you're liable for VAT, you can reclaim this amount. And if you're under the VAT exemption scheme, your life just got a lot easier. You no longer have to declare and pay the VAT yourself; we'll handle it for you.

What do you need to do?

Actually, you don't have to do much. The new VAT rate will be applied automatically to all your next invoices, starting in September 1, 2023. If you handle your own VAT declarations, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure to declare the VAT under the correct category in your return.

  • If you have a bookkeeper or accountant, you might want to give them a heads-up. It might not even be necessary, but it never hurts to keep them in the loop.

If you have any questions, you can check the FAQ below or reach out to us.


  • What is a "special VAT return"?

    • A special VAT return is a way to pay the VAT you owe for certain services. This usually doesn't apply to your Salonized invoices.

  • Do I need to make any changes to my own administration?

    • No, you don't need to make any changes. The new VAT rules will automatically apply to your invoices.

  • How can I reclaim the VAT?

    • If you're liable for VAT, you can reclaim this amount through your periodic VAT returns.

  • What if I'm under the VAT exemption scheme?

    • Your life just got easier! You no longer have to declare and pay the VAT yourself; we'll handle it for you.

  • Is anything changing with my Salonized subscription?

    • No, nothing is changing with your current subscription. The price and features remain the same.

  • How can I cancel or change my subscription?

    • You can cancel or change your subscription at any time through your Salonized account.

  • How do you report this?

    • Reporting example:

    • Old tax reporting categories: 55 and 59

  • New tax reporting category: Only 55
