IDEP/CN8 for Belgium


On 30 Januari 2018 the NBB enabled a security upgrade.
(More info can be found here )
As a result it is no longer possible with the 2017 and early 2018 releases of IDEP to send in declarations automatically to OneGate. This will result in an error-message.
The problem has meanwhile been fixed in the IDEP release V2018.0.1.4.
You need to execute the check-for-upgrades function from the IDEP system maintenance menu, start a direct installation or download this ZIP archive, to be unpacked and installed locally.
Alternatively, you can download this registry fix, unpack it and execute it with Admin rights.
The easiest however is to install the upgrade.

Should it take some time for someone with Admin rights to fix this problem for you, during which time you still want to be able to send in your declarations to OneGate, you can always use the Output option "Manually to OneGate". This will open a browser-window where you can log-in to OneGate manually. At the same time an Explorer windows opens pointing to the XML file. You can now on the OneGate site use the menu-option "Upload XML"

IDEP/CN8 continues in Belgium

Starting January 2016, the IDEP package was no longer distributed by the NBB/BNB. Until now the package was developed and maintained by Revolux, but the NBB performed the distribution and end-user support themselves.

The distribution of IDEP/CN8 has been taken over by Revolux and an annual licence fee will be charged. Technically, nothing changes for the users. The annual check-for-upgrades procedures remain operational. At the beginning of each year an upgrade becomes available, which will contain all legislation (including updated CN8-Tables) for the new year. The upgrade can be installed at any time, but only after the package is re-registered for the new year, declarations for that new year can be created and sent in

Since December the new version is available and you can:

Price:order your licence
97 EUR: one year license with one single technical support intervention.
One licence per client installation is required.
VAT is not applicable for non-Luxembourgish companies.

  • The IDEP user interface exists in French and English.
