“I am a tax advisor because taxes speak strongly to my sense of justice. Taxes should support a stronger society and should never be a limiting factor to it”

Taxes should serve ‘the greater good’, but complex legislation and overkill often lead to an opposite effect without the proper diligent guidance. By providing that diligent guidance, I want to help our clients overcome tax related obstacles. With a realistic view on obligations and responsibilities, but also with a creative view on opportunities and possibilities.

After having worked at two Big 4 audit firms over the years, in the international ruling practice at the first and in the national and family business practice at the latter, I founded Archipel at the end of 2017 together with Cees and Pieter-Bastiaan. My personal underlying goal with that move was to be able to provide clear and concise advice without having to run a time consuming administration. As far as I’m concerned, tax advice should always contain concrete conclusions and recommendations, and its price should not be inflated by non-tax related peripheral activities. I am proud of the way we give shape to this idea at Archipel, for instance by developing and using MyArchipel, and I therefore thoroughly enjoy doing business this way. The experiences this generates, I use in my advices. I feel that’s how Archipel makes true on its intention to really help clients move forward and to be a fun and inspiring workplace!
