Expat Tax Status

Question

Good afternoon expats.

As a new resident I would appreciate some clarification about the expat tax status for which we qualify. From everything I have read, I am under the impression that tax here is paid only on the Belgian Salary. Is this correct?

I was wondering specifically about rental income on our house we are letting in the UK. Obviously we pay tax on that in the UK but I assume it is not also taxed over here.

Is my understanding correct?

Many thanks in advance.

yes that's correct, although to be totally "legal" you do still have to declare it here in Belgium, even though you won't be taxed on it.
