Experience

Jurriaan joined Meijburg & Co in 2002. He spent his first years at the company working for a wide range of clients and advising them on a broad spectrum of tax issues. This allowed him to gain valuable all-round experience.

Since 2005, Jurriaan’s focus has been international, and he now specializes in cross-border issues and dividend withholding tax. During 2007-2008 he was seconded to Hong Kong, where he was a member of KPMG China’s China Outbound Team that advises Chinese multinationals on cross-border investments.

His interest in Asia did not diminish once he returned to the Netherlands, and he currently has a number of Chinese and Korean multinationals as clients. Jurriaan is chairperson of the China and Korea Desks. Jurriaan also advises a number of listed multinationals with Dutch ‘roots’ on mergers, expansions, and how to structure and finance their international activities.

Jurriaan would describe himself as pro-active, creative, and realistic in his approach to advising clients. He can turn technical and complicated subject matter into information that is useful and understandable for his clients.

Jurriaan regularly speaks on international tax planning at seminars, and is a lecturer at the international KPMG Tax Business School.
