Once Only principle
According to the Once Only principle, administrations may no longer ask users (citizens and businesses) to provide information these administrations already have access to through data from authoritative sources.
The Brussels Capital Region has decided to make all Brussels administrations apply the Once Only principle as of 2021 and bring the existing procedures into compliance (forms).
Since 1 November 2020, only invoices in electronic format are accepted for all public contracts awarded from that date onwards by the administrations and public organisations of the Brussels-Capital Region.
This means that invoices for public contracts awarded after 1 November and in a format other than XML (e.g. paper, e-mail, etc.) are no longer processed.
If you are concerned by this obligation, consult the information in order to comply.
Please note that only the pages in French and Dutch relating to electronic invoicing have been updated. Please consult them for the latest updated information.
Let's simplify administration!
easy.brussels is the agency responsible for administrative simplification in the Brussels-Capital Region. It implements a philosophy of simplification within regional institutions in order to reduce the administrative burden on citizens and businesses.
How does the Brussels agency in charge of administrative simplification work in practice? easy.brussels relies on the targets set in the Administrative Simplification Plan 2020-2025 of the Brussels-Capital Region. This strategy is broken down into general, strategic, and operational objectives, as well as concrete actions.
Catalogue of procedures
Review of regulations
One of easy.brussels’ simplification tasks is to review the regulations in force. These evolve over time, and may as such have been made more complex. Understanding of regulations on the part of users, as well as ease of use, are the agency’s primary concerns. In order to simplify administration effectively, it is not only necessary to introduce specific simplification measures, but also to review the legislative context to streamline existing procedures and reduce inconvenience for users.
