Wie energiezuinig bouwt krijgt extra korting op onroerende voorheffing

28 Oct
October 28, 2012

Wie vanaf volgend jaar een energiezuinige woning bouwt, kan rekenen op een korting van 50 en zelfs 100 procent op de onroerende voorheffing. Dit voorstel van de ministers Freya Van den Bossche SP.A en Philippe Muyters N-VA werd goedgekeurd door de Vlaamse regering. Wie een woning bouwt die nog zuiniger is dan de huidige norm, kan sinds het aanslagjaar 2009 rekenen op een korting van 20 of 40 procent op de onroerende voorheffing voor een periode van tien jaar. Sindsdien is de energienorm wel al aangescherpt en in de komende jaar zal de norm nog verstrengen. Deze ‘verstrenging van energienormen’ wil de Vlaamse regering laten samengaan met hogere kortingen op de onroerende voorheffing. Wie energiezuiniger bouwt dan de norm, mag rekenen op een korting van 50 procent. Wie véél beter doet, krijgt een korting van 100 procent op de oproerende voorheffing. Wel belangrijk om bij te vermelden: de premie zal wel slechts gedurende vijf jaar worden toegekend. Maar volgens de bevoegde ministers, Van den Bossche en Muyters, betekent dit nog altijd winst.

A reporter of the Bulletin magazine, which is an English magazine distributed throughout Belgium with its focus on expats, sat down for a talk with a couple of locals in Sint-Martens-Latem.

One being in Sint-Martens-Latem and the other in Ghent at the “Groentenmarkt”. And the restaurant “Brasserie Latem”, a must-go if you are into great cuisine, is also mentioned in the article.

Engel & Völkers Sint-Martens-Latem was one of the main sponsors of the benefit concert organized by the Lions Club Gent Gandalys from the 25th of March untill the 27th of March.

The featured artists were “SCALA & Kolacny Brothers”, a world renowned Belgian girls choir, conducted by Stijn Kolacny and arranged and accompanied by Steven Kolacny on the piano. Formed in 1996 and winning the Belgian ‘Choir of the Year’-contest in 2000, they have made five studio albums, starting with On The Rocks in 2002.

The benefit concert was spread over 3 days with 1 performance a day.  The venue, a local peugeot and volvo dealership was transformed to a concert venue, seating around 600 people and was completely sold out. Because it was the last concert of “Scala & Kolacny Brothers” in Belgian, they flew back from New York just to give this concert, before kicking of their USA and CANADA tour. So the total of availible tickets, around 1800, flew as quickly out of the door as it toke Scala to get back to Belgium. For tickets to one of their concerts as well as the locations: Scala & Kolacny Brothers Official Website

The E&V Sint-Martens-Latem team was present on the first of three concert evenings, to admire the powerfull voices of the singers as well as to mingle and give away 200+ GG’s to the attendees.

Engel & Völkers Sint-Martens-Latem was one of the main sponsors of the avant-premier organized by the Ladies Fifty-One on the 20th of March 2011.

The local movie theatre, Kinepolis Ghent, was rented out to accomodate around 400 ladies (with spouses) of the serviceclub Fifty-One Ladies Gent.

They were all present to watch The Adjustment Bureau in avant-premier together. The screening was preceded by an aperitief as well as a promotional slideshow of the main sponsors. In that slideshow the guests were able to see the ad underneath on the huge movie theatre screen.

The Ladies Fifty-One club also used the opportunity to donate 3 cheques, with a value of 2500 euro each, to 3 different charities.
