New categories of information required in the Limosa declaration

A Royal Decree of 14 September 2017 inserts new categories of information in the Limosa declaration for posted and self-employed workers. It enters into force on 1st October 2017.

Categories of information relating to the nature of the services carried out in connection with posted workers in Belgium and the identification and contact details of the liaison person are added to the Limosa declaration. This is the implementation of the provision regarding the obligation of the employer to appoint a liaison person when workers are seconded to Belgium.

The Limosa declaration now includes the following categories of information:

  • the worker’s identification data;
  • the employer’s (and the employer’s representative) identification data;
  • the user/client’s identification data;
  • the expected start and end date of the secondment to Belgium;
  • the nature of the services performed in Belgium;
  • in the case of temporary work, the approval number of the foreign temporary employment agency, if this approval is required;
  • should the work involves undertakings belonging to the Joint Committee for Construction (JC n° 124), a reference to the payment to the worker of benefits equivalent to the benefits referred to in the collective bargaining agreement of 12 September 2013 for the period of occupation in Belgium;
  • the place where the services are performed in Belgium;
  • the worker’s working schedule; and
  • the identification data and the contact details of the liaison person (his/her name, first name and date of birth, Belgian identification number for social security, the quality of the liaison person, physical and electronic addresses and a telephone number to which he/she can be contacted).

These amendments come into effect on October 1st, 2017.
