Tax declaration of the income from mutual investment funds

Income obtained from foreign mutual investment funds (also known as FCP - Fonds Commun de Placement) are not taxed at the source.

This is because these mutual investment funds do not have their own legal personality. It is assumed that you, as a unit holder, collect all income from moveable assets yourself. If you declare the total amount of this income (consisting of dividends and, depending on the fund, interests) in your yearly tax declaration, you are in order with regard to the levy in discharge.

The unit holders of FCP mutual investment funds must declare this income (dividends and interest) themselves in their personal income declaration under Part I, Section VII A2d 1° (codes 1444-11 and/or 2444-78).

For the sake of clarity, this tax declaration does not apply for mutual investment funds with their own legal personality, such as an open-ended investment company (SICAV or BEVEK).

In your own personal situation, you can calculate this, amongst others, using the fiscal simulators of the following fund houses:
