Partner, Corporate Tax | Tax, Legal & Accountancy

KPMG in Belgium

I joined KPMG in 1988 and have been advising multinational organizations on corporate tax (both domestic and international tax) and transfer pricing issues. I have been involved in and conducted various tax planning and transfer pricing assignments, ranging from the preparation of European transfer pricing documentation (including functional and economic analyses and comparable searches), domestic and international transfer pricing audit defense to the negotiation of (uni-, bi- and multilateral) rulings and advance pricing arrangements (APAs).
