“I have studied international tax law at the University of Amsterdam after which I have practiced tax law at several tax firms. I like to discuss tax questions with clients and other tax lawyers, notaries and advisors in The Netherlands and all over the world. To ensure I can provide the best advice for the client. 

Stellar is a young company with an entrepreneurial team. I enjoy building the company exactly how we want it to be for the client and for us. What clients say about me? That I’m efficient, can explain thing clearly and always strive for the best results. My father (former senior lecturer at

“After my tax law study (master: International tax law) at the University of Amsterdam, I started working at KPMG Meijburg & Co as tax advisor. I always had the ambition to start something for myself. So, I founded my own tax law firm after finalizing my course at the Dutch Order of Tax Advisors.
During this period, I realized for myself that my ambition was to build something for the long term. Being an entrepreneur was so intriguing for me that I started other businesses besides my tax law firm. Because of this, it is very easy for me to determine the commercial interests of my clients. I see myself as their personal guide through all the (complex) tax rules and regulations. What my clients appreciate the most about me is my ability to always think in solutions. Stellar’s objective is to build a long term and reliable office for our clients. This was also my personal motivation to help co-found Stellar Tax Advice.” ​

“After finalizing my study “Tax Law” at the University of Amsterdam in 1993, I started as a tax lawyer at PWC tax consultants. I noticed that I was able to build close relationships with customers of the firm. Maybe that’s because I am fascinated by entrepreneurship and feel personally involved with directors and/or owners of privately-held companies.
The relationship between me and my customers is what motivates me in my work and what satisfies me. I see myself as an entrepreneurial partner for my clients: successes for the companies I work with, feel like my own successes. I am proud when my clients achieve success with the tax advices that I have given them. As I said, I am curious by nature. This explains why I know the customer’s case by heart. My customers appreciate my involvement in and knowledge of the case. Mostly, I can answer their questions immediately. Stellar Tax advice is an informal, accessible and transparent organization. That’s important to me and to our customers. I carefully guard these values of Stellar.” ​

During my time at Nyenrode Business University, where I obtained Bachelor of Science in Accountancy and Controlling, I simultaneously gained my experience as an auditor and accounting specialist at a mid-sized accounting firm. While there I realized that I could easily develop a pleasant relationship with my customers. 

After a period of working for various secondment agencies and administrative offices, I obtained my RB Title (Register Tax Advisor) and became a partner at Stellar Tax Advice. My customers like the fact that I have an efficient, proactive and enthusiastic approach to solving financial and tax issues. I do not shy away from automation and communication. This allows me to quickly process the administration of Stellar’s customers, which are also clear and transparent towards the customer. This makes me a sounding board for our customers by which I can proactively think along and respond to complex administrative issues. At Stellar, we have great pleasure in providing the best quality for our customers and that suits me as a Stellar partner. “

I am a third year Tax Law student at the University of Amsterdam. I combine my study with work as a Junior tax lawyer at Stellar Tax Advice. During my study I developed an enormous interest in certain fields of tax law, especially International Tax Law.

As a junior tax lawyer, I prepare the documents to provide the most complete advice to companies and individuals. Both nationally and internationally. It gives me great satisfaction to look in detail into the tax matters for Stellar’s customers and provide them with the best advice.

At Stellar I got a great opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge in practice and to further develop myself as a tax lawyer.

My colleagues and friends describe me as a team player who is very social and has a lot of perseverance. I have developed these skills in the many years that I have played water polo and are crucial in business today.

Stellar it is an informal office that is the ideal place to grow and where everyone feels at ease.

In 1980, fresh from grammar school, I got caught up in the fiscal world when I became a civil servant at the Dutch Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  At the age of 39 I graduated in tax law and became master of law. In the year 2000, before graduating, I made the switch to the tax consultancy practice.

During my time with the Dutch IRS i audited the accounting of business on the spot, as well the tax returns of entrepreneurs and individuals. I also specialized in tax fines and discal criminal law.

My focus in that time was on the corporate tax, income tax, wage tax and value added tax.

When i joined the tax consultancy practice, that did not change. During the years that followed transfer tax became another specialism.

Since about 10 years i also write tax articles for Kluwer (‘Belastingadvies in de praktijk’) and some other publishers.

With Stellar (joined in march 2021) I found a mishmash of tax advisors with different backgrounds, but who all have in common a strong drive and creativity, the gift to hink out of the box, all for the benefit of our clients.

As a tax advisor I enjoy to achieve apparant impossibilities, solve difficult problems, and always lok for the tax optimum for our clients.
