Question:

Hi there, I legally live in Belgium (British, married to a Belgian). I would like to open my first small business here selling my own brand British made products via a website. I haven't worked for 7 years (formerly worked in Brussels but took a break to look after my child). How do I go about this the right way? Is an eenmanzaak the way to go please and how do I initiate this? Thanks in advance.

Dear Madam,

On these sites you will find some info:

Where will your business be based ? logistics ? Do you produce your own brand ?
A webshop can be based anywhere. Lots of websites are based in Cyprus, because of a good business environment (low taxes).

What is your businessplan ? financial forecast ?

All these matters have to be taken into consideration.

Maybe a meeting is more suitable ?

Kind regards,
