General tax advice

Our general cross-border tax advisory covers both business taxes and private taxes. Business taxes concern corporate income tax, source tax and transfer pricing aspects of both inbound and outbound business investments. Private taxes cover personal income tax aspects of foreign private assets and migration. Naturally, this is done in cooperation with internal and external (foreign) specialists. Upon request we arrange (part of) the coordination of the execution process.

VAT & Real estate transfer tax

Our VAT-specialists are able to provide you with any service that relates to VAT, such as VAT compliance, information with regard to (the change of) VAT rules, consultancy, trainings, and more. In case your company is not located in the Netherlands, you can appoint us as your fiscal representative in the Netherlands. Together with our accountancy colleagues, we can structure your administration in a way that it is fully compliant with VAT regulations.

 

Moreover, we are specialized and experienced in advisory concerning real estate and the confluence of VAT and Real Estate Transfer Tax.

Employment taxes & global mobility

In our employment taxes and global mobility practice we cover all aspects regarding payroll tax, social insurances, tax optimization of employee compensation and benefits, and other employee related topics with a local (Dutch) focus. Furthermore, we coordinate issues concerning international mobility of employees inside and outside the Netherlands: from tax, social security and pension plans to employment law, HR and immigration rules. We provide consulting services as well as compliance services.

International estate planning

We have attention for all family matters. Estate planning regards fiscal and legal advice of property transfers within a family. These transfers could be in the form of gifts, the succession of a family business, marriage, divorce or the settlement of an estate upon decease. In addition, we arrange the establishment of protection structures, such as trusts and foundations, in several jurisdictions. We aim to reach fiscal optimization within the borders of personal preferences and the applicable laws and regulations in different countries.

Assurance

An audit is required by law or demanded by stakeholders for certain organizations. Shareholders, managing boards, supervisory boards and other stakeholders value the assurance provided by an audit. They consider audited financial statements as important information and support for decision making. We provide a highly effective and efficient audit approach by optimally deploying our people and resources. Our goal is to rely as much as possible on your internal (automated) controls supported by our in-house IT auditors.
