Our team

Richard Bierlaagh

Taxes should be paid for society to work, no disagreement there. However, I do feel strongly that governments and tax authorities have the responsibility to not make paying those taxes a limiting factor in doing business through unnecessary complexity. Therefore, as a tax advisor, I strive to support my clients navigate the complexities of tax legislation and review the tax authorities positions in the process.

I have been trained in the field of taxation with an accent on global mobility and wage tax for several years in one of the Big-4 firms. During this time, I have supported multinational clients as well as family businesses. Besides my tax practice, I publish articles in leading tax literature and I am a lecturer in Dutch tax law in the Hague.

At Archipel I look forward to being your guide through the field of tax as well as trusted business advisor!

What I mostly like in Archipel is the personalized service we got. Archipel is a boutique firm that employs professional calibers with international experience and extensive business knowledge in The Netherlands. I recall when we first connected, not only did we discuss the legal setup in the Netherlands, but we also touched base on the overall legal setup in the US too. The minutes of our first meeting that were communicated were simple yet detailed. They included a roadmap too. The follow-up throughout the incorporation, with the notary public, and the connections to other business entities in The Netherlands was very helpful. Solid advice, flexible personalized service, transparency, professionalism, and pleasant/personable interaction all those traits make of Archipel our long-term partners for sure.
