For many entrepreneurs, VAT too often forms a blind spot. It is seen as a tax labyrinth of ever-changing rules, but also as a penalty-sensitive minefield without safety net. 
Together with my team, I advise and guide national and international companies through this complex matter. We guide them clearly through the maze of VAT obligations and point out possible opportunities. In this way we can limit financial risks, but also create opportunities. 

Also for foreign players, our team takes care of their Belgian VAT compliance from A to Z. In addition, I take care of the international contacts within our worldwide indirect tax network.
I also like to share my knowledge by often speaking at seminars and by publishing fiscal articles.

In my spare time, I enjoy a good book, a (recreational) ride on my mountain bike and a nice evening at home (or at a restaurant) with family.
