VAT Information

The prices on our website are excluding VAT. Depending on the format of the course (face-to-face in Brussels or live online or self-study programme) and your location, we are obliged by Belgian law to apply VAT.

We are obliged by Belgian law to apply VAT in the following cases:

Face-to-Face public course organised in Belgium


Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112 states that : “The place of supply of services in respect of admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person, shall be the place where those events actually take place.” 
If the course that you register for takes place in Belgium, we are obliged to charge 21% Belgian VAT. 
However, you can recover this Belgian VAT through the refund procedure. Note that this procedure differs depending on the country where you are located. It is best to contact your local VAT administration for this.
 

Online Public courses -  live webinar


Webinars where the participants can communicate among themselves or ask questions to the speaker(s) (be it verbally, via a chat function or similar), are considered as ‘online interactive webinars’ by the Belgian VAT administration. 
According to Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112, these online interactive webinars take place where the organisation of the seminar takes place, which in this case is Belgium. 
So, if you register for one of our live online courses (organised from our offices in Belgium), we are obliged to charge 21% Belgian VAT. 
However, you can recover this Belgian VAT through the refund procedure. Note that this procedure differs depending on the country where you are located. It is best to contact your local VAT administration for this.
 

Self-Study Programme:


A self-study programme is a service provided electronically. It is the period of self-study that is the most important in our self-study Basics of Health Economics and not the kickoff and closing webinars. As a result, this self-study program follows a different VAT application and the place of the service is where the customer is established. Therefore, we follow the VAT rules applicable to the country of your invoicing address.

 

Group Discounts

Team discounts can be offered to 2 or more delegates from the same company.

Email Annelies Swaan, Director Business Operations, for more details.

  • If a registrant postpones his/her participation to a future course, and cancels again, no refund can be claimed for registration fees.

 

Benefits of CELforPharma’s face-to-face courses:

  • Plenty of opportunity for informal 1:1 and group conversations with your international peers to exchange experiences and ideas, to discuss issues and to network.

  • Face-to-face interactions allow for more depth during Q&As and group work.

  • You can step away from your daily routine in the office and enjoy a more focused learning experience in a comfortable business hotel environment.

 

Benefits of CELforPharma’s live online courses:

  • The formal programme is as impactful as a face-to-face course thanks to the highly interactive format (using breakouts, polls, quizzes …).

  • No travel & accommodation expenses

  • You can attend the course from the comfort of your own office or home.

  • We send you the course materials by post so that you can take notes and fully engage with the course content.

Our face-to-face courses in Brussels take place in four-star business hotels close to the airport. As part of our strong relationship with these hotels, CELforPharma has secured a discount on the daily room rate for our delegates who book their accommodation via us.   

Upon your registration, we will assist you to make your hotel booking. For any assistance in this matter please do not hesitate to email Lisa Causero, Programme Coordinator, or contact her by phone at +32 484 70 91 97. 

We do not record our live online public courses as we want to offer a safe environment for all attendees to share their experiences and freely ask questions.

This way, by participating in our courses, you do not only learn from our expert faculty but also from your international peers in the room.

No, we don't sell the course materials as a stand-alone. 
Without the expert's explanation, the exercises and the discussions with other course participants, there is very little value in the slides.

Email Inge Cornelis, partner with CELforPharma, to help you choose the course that is best suited. 

Yes! 

We have helped many managers with setting up an in-house training programme for their team.

Depending on the format of the course (face-to-face in Brussels or live online or self-study programme) and your location, we are obliged by Belgian law to apply VAT in the following cases:

Face-to-Face public course organised in Belgium


Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112 states that : “The place of supply of services in respect of admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person, shall be the place where those events actually take place.” 
If the course that you register for takes place in Belgium, we are obliged to charge 21% Belgian VAT. 
However, you can recover this Belgian VAT through the refund procedure. Note that this procedure differs depending on the country where you are located. It is best to contact your local VAT administration for this.
 

Online Public courses -  live webinar


Webinars where the participants can communicate among themselves or ask questions to the speaker(s) (be it verbally, via a chat function or similar), are considered as ‘online interactive webinars’ by the Belgian VAT administration. 
According to Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112, these online interactive webinars take place where the organisation of the seminar takes place, which in this case is Belgium. 
So, if you register for one of our live online courses (organised from our offices in Belgium), we are obliged to charge 21% Belgian VAT. 
However, you can recover this Belgian VAT through the refund procedure. Note that this procedure differs depending on the country where you are located. It is best to contact your local VAT administration for this.
 

Self-Study Programme:


A self-study programme is a service provided electronically. It is the period of self-study that is the most important in our self-study Basics of Health Economics and not the kickoff and closing webinars. As a result, this self-study program follows a different VAT application and the place of the service is where the customer is established. Therefore, we follow the VAT rules applicable to the country of your invoicing address.

Our face-to-face courses in Brussels take place in four-star business hotels close to the airport. As part of our strong relationship with these hotels, CELforPharma has secured a discount on the daily room rate for our delegates who book their accommodation via us.   

Upon your registration, we will assist you to make your hotel booking. For any assistance in this matter please do not hesitate to email Lisa Causero, Programme Coordinator, or contact her by phone at +32 484 70 91 97. 

We do not record our live online public courses as we want to offer a safe environment for all attendees to share their experiences and freely ask questions.

This way, by participating in our courses, you do not only learn from our expert faculty but also from your international peers in the room.

No, we don't sell the course materials as a stand-alone. 
Without the expert's explanation, the exercises and the discussions with other course participants, there is very little value in the slides.

Email Inge Cornelis, partner with CELforPharma, to help you choose the course that is best suited. 

Yes! 

We have helped many managers with setting up an in-house training programme for their team.
