Brussels to file complaint against Uber

Web-based taxi company Uber risks being banned in the Belgian capital Brussels in just the latest legal challenge to its services. Belgian authorities will back a local taxi firm which alleges unfair competition from Uber and file a complaint with the Brussels prosecutor, regional transport minister Pascal Smet told Belgian newspapers on Friday.

Smet told Le Soir that an examining magistrate could order a bank investigation and find out how many drivers were taking part in the system, their identities, and determine whether they were respecting fiscal and social security laws.

“The drivers are not paying tax on income,” nor do they make social security contributions, he said.
