• Connecting


    The international tax world is changing. States take positions in their national tax laws which could lead to international double taxation. By understanding the global perspective of (international) taxation, we can help your organization overcoming this new challenge by giving you and your advisors tailor-made support by developing a sustainable planning with your advisors. That is what we call ‘connecting knowledge’.
