Partner VAT Advisory

“Leadership is helping your team excel.”

“My work focuses on (international) real estate projects and international VAT issues. I guide clients through the process of developing and transforming real estate. Additionally, I assist clients involved in international trade with the optimisation of the supply chain. I frequently teach at VAT training courses and speak at (international) seminars. What I find interesting about our practice, is the dynamic environment in which I can make optimal use of both my knowledge of VAT and my other skills.”

“I’m a real family man and treasure my time with family, friends and acquaintances. I like to read, and exercise. I can often be found on the football pitch, but I also spend time running and at the gym. I am particularly proud of having developed the VAT & Customs Advisory team into a fully-fledged and high-quality VAT practice, in which we help each other and encourage each other to grow.”
