Examples & realizations of conversion to light freight
Once again everything in order
For many entrepreneurs it is advisable to convert the company car to a car with light freight. A light truck is a vehicle that is not allowed to transport more than 3.500 kg of mass. But you may wonder why it is beneficial to convert a vehicle into a light truck. Well, the point is that you can then benefit from various tax advantages in Belgium.
Business expenses are 100% deductible
As an entrepreneur you have to pay a lot of tax on the profit. This can be very frustrating and for that reason it is not a bad idea to cut profits. The more expenses you incur annually, the less tax you will ultimately have to pay. When you use a light truck for business purposes, the costs are 100% deductible. That is one of the reasons why smart entrepreneurs decide to convert the car.
You are entitled to investment deduction
In Belgium, entrepreneurs are encouraged to make investments. After all, you are only a real entrepreneur when you start investing in your company. Several entrepreneurs are eligible for the investment deduction. Entrepreneurs with a light truck can also benefit from this deduction.
When you make a large investment, you cannot write it off within a year. There are all rules for this. This is also logical, because otherwise entrepreneurs can make a very large purchase at the end of the year and then they have to pay almost no tax.
In principle, the faster you can write off investment costs, the better this is for your company from a tax perspective. A light truck is of course also a significant investment and you can deduct this from the balance faster than larger trucks. In addition, additional costs may be debited immediately upon purchase.
What are the costs?

Important: you do not pay VAT on this amount with us. Of course you can always request a non-binding quote in advance. Then you know exactly where you stand financially.
How long does it take?
The conversion of the car does take some time. On average this takes about 4 weeks. The corresponding inspections are usually also carried out.
