OUR MEMBER’S PERSPECTIVE – WHERE BUSINESS BELONGS
The British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg‘s new global campaign, “𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗕𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘀” is a campaign that aims to provide a powerful platform for businesses to come together, drive growth, and make a real difference in the market. As part of this campaign, we will spotlight our members who have also answered three short questions for us!
Our questions to Simone:
Joining the British Chamber of Commerce Luxembourg was motivated by several compelling factors. Firstly, the chamber’s reputation as an exceptionally dynamic organization dedicated to fostering discussions on relevant and current business topics through events and seminars greatly appealed to me. Being part of a community that actively engages with pressing issues and encourages thoughtful discourse is invaluable.
Moreover, the chamber’s membership base played a pivotal role in my decision. It boasts a diverse group of professionals, each bringing their unique perspectives and expertise to the table. This diversity not only enhances networking opportunities but also ensures a high standard of members, creating an environment conducive to growth and learning.
As for the hottest topic in my business at this moment, it revolves around talent acquisition, particularly in relation to the housing burden. Luxembourg’s economic dynamism has attracted professionals from all over the world, leading to increased demand for housing. This, in turn, has placed considerable pressure on companies to provide attractive housing solutions for their employees. Balancing competitive employment packages with the challenges of finding affordable and suitable housing is a complex puzzle that many businesses, including mine, are currently grappling with.
In terms of the best piece of business advice I’ve received, it can be interpreted in two ways. First, the recommendation not to seek housing on the other side of the border highlights the importance of choosing a location that aligns with your professional and personal goals. Striking the right balance between work and life can significantly impact one’s overall experience.

As you may know, the current tax treaty between the United Kingdom and Luxembourg was signed in London in May 1967 (before the UK joined the EEC) and was amended several times over the years. A new UK-Luxembourg tax treaty was concluded in June 2022 (after the UK left the EU) and will enter into force in 2024. The main reasons for an overhaul of the existing tax treaty include the UK’s withdrawal of the European Union (Brexit) and the evolution of tax standards put forward by the OECD and the BEPS project in recent years.
