Govinda Kandhai

Sr. Manager VAT Advisory

“Sincere commitment is the cornerstone of every cooperation.”

“My work focusses on the (inter)national real estate market in the broadest sense of the word. I advise parties with regard to the development of real estate, transfer and upkeep of real estate portfolios and the transformation of real estate. I am a lecturer at Maastricht University, where I put my knowledge to work teaching students, and I regularly publish professional articles. What I enjoy most about my work is optimising projects in a dynamic and hectic environment with a lot at stake, and ensuring everything runs smoothly.”

“In my spare time I enjoy being with friends and family, sharing a nice meal or watching sports. I also follow the stock markets with great interest, and explore all kinds of economic trends. I like playing sports, or simply kicking a ball around on the football field.”
