What percentage of your investments or expenditure can be covered by subsidies?

For general investments, you could benefit from subsidies covering between 2.5% and 30% of your investment.

For specific investments, you could benefit from subsidies covering between 30% and 70% of your investment.

For consulting or training costs, you could benefit from subsidies covering between 25% and 80% of your investment.

The percentage subsidised consists of a base figure plus supplementary amounts, up to a maximum ceiling.

The subsidies you can receive depend on the following parameters:

  • the exemplary social and/or environmental characteristics of your business
  • the location of the investment in Brussels (inside or outside the Development Area)
  • the size of your business
  • the type of investment
  • whether your business is a start-up

What are exemplary characteristics?

This concept encourages businesses of all kinds to become more environmentally and/or socially responsible. It forms part of a comprehensive and innovative strategy for the Brussels-Capital Region which aims to guide and support Brussels-based businesses through the economic transition.
Three methods of demonstrating exemplary characteristics are:
  • holding a certification or label
  • receiving support from a recognised public scheme
  • encouraging socio-professional integration and training

What is the Development Area?

When it comes to subsidies, Brussels is divided into several areas:

  • the Development Area (in blue)
  • the rest of Brussels

If you are investing in the Development Area, you are entitled to a larger subsidy from the Brussels-Capital Region.

Be sure to submit your subsidy application well in advance of beginning your project

It’s important to apply for your subsidy before signing a purchase order, accepting a quote, or receiving or paying any invoices. You can’t obtain financial assistance for products or services you’ve already ordered or purchased.

What does Subsidia@KBC Brussels cost?

In exchange for complete management of the application process, Subsidia@KBC Brussels receives 7% of the subsidies awarded, with a minimum of 750 euros excluding VAT. Applications concerning subsidies for consulting, training or export are subject to a flat fee of 500 euros excluding VAT.
