Work experience

During my tax law studies at the University of Groningen (RUG) I started working at PwC in 1999. On November 1, 2001 I transferred to the international tax advisory practice of BDO. In the beginning I was mainly occupied with the activities of the international tax advisory practice in the field of financing, participations and other cross-border transactions. Because my interest lies  in the broad tax spectrum of cross-border business, my work shifted to multinational companies. My focus increasingly came to be on tax advice for the operational side of doing business across borders.

I have worked for a large number of Dutch and foreign construction companies in both dry construction and wet construction (dredging companies, cable layers, pipe layers, and builders of wind parks), both onshore and offshore.  My other clients have very diverse business activities, including instore media solutions, IT, real estate investment, hotels & recreation, logistics (maritime, aviation and land transport) and companies in the Port of Rotterdam.

I assist my clients with setting up companies, both in the Netherlands and abroad, setting up tax-optimized financings, making acquisitions, reorganizing the structure or business activities, avoiding double taxation by means of a so-called Mutual Agreement Procedure, tax audits, and fixed set-up issues (depending on agent). As an extension of my work, I have spoken at conferences, given training sessions at clients and relations, and taught in-house in the field of international tax law.
