The government recently tabled a bill in Parliament which would amend the law of 8 June 1999 relating to supplementary pension schemes with effect from 1 January 2018. This bill has three main aims:
1. to widen the scope of application of the law to include the self-employed and liberal professions.
2. to adopt certain provisions of the social chapter of the law dated 8 June 1999, in light of experience gained since its entry into force in 2000.
3. finally, to adopt the fiscal framework of the law, following in particular the opening up of the second pillar to the self-employed.
