Our approach

vrouw aan tafel

Every organisation is different, and every tax issue demands its own specific approach. That is why Meijburg & Co always delivers customised solutions.

We put together the right team to fit in with the culture and working methods of our clients. Our advisors are proactive, client-driven and possess excellent technical expertise in their fields. We follow the facts and provide reliable, objective high quality tax advice. Where necessary, we work closely together with our KPMG colleagues abroad, usually in an international tax consultancy coordination role.

Our experience and high quality advice constitute the solid foundations of our practice. We combine these with a sharp eye for innovation, aware that the application of technology plays an increasingly important role for our clients and the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, and in our own consultancy.

Resolution of complex tax issues

Taxation is an everyday matter. Whether it is corporate income tax, personal income tax, VAT, customs duties or other levies, everyone has to deal with it. Tax legislation is extremely complex, and without sound tax guidance, you may be confronted with an excessive tax burden and with tensions in your relationship with governments or other stakeholders. It is therefore important that you have a committed financial advisor, who provides high quality advice. And thanks to Meijburg Legal’s business tax law specialists, you can also rest assured as to the smooth legal implementation of our tax advice.

Compliance/meeting legislative requirements

Ever-changing legislation, a growing number of requirements concerning the manner in which you submit returns and when you do so, increasing attention to tax positioning in the annual accounts and developments around standard financial reporting are making the annual tax return process increasingly challenging for businesses.

Our services include all aspects of the return process, from requesting postponement to the final submission of returns to the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. Working closely with Meijburg & Co’s other tax specialists, returns specialists are represented at each of our offices. Due to this integrated approach, our clients receive the best of advice on their overall tax position.

We provide compliance services to internationally active and multinational companies, with a view to global compliance with tax and legal obligations. We have a global network of dedicated professionals, hugely familiar with the complex and continuously changing tax and legal accounting regulations, and in providing centrally coordinated compliance services to multinational businesses. We assist our clients in transforming and streamlining their tax and accounting position by means of a management strategy, which can reduce the overall costs of compliance while, at the same time, improving quality.

Legal assistance

Tax authorities have far-reaching powers where the determination of tax liabilities and the collection thereof are concerned. A difference of opinion on how the law should be applied may degenerate into a tax dispute. In such cases, Meijburg & Co can offer legal assistance. We assist clients in foregrounding the right arguments and facts, so that an incorrect assessment or ruling can be reversed or reduced. If this course of action fails with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, we can also conduct legal proceedings on the client’s behalf with the competent judicial authorities. In order to effectively resolve tax disputes, an understanding of the law is not sufficient. Knowing where the client’s interests and priorities lie and providing a confidential environment in which matters can be openly discussed are equally, if not more, important. We are meticulous where the details are concerned, while bearing in mind the relationship that virtually every client has with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, with due regard to social norms.
