I am a senior associate in the Tax department of our Brussels office. I advise both Belgian and international clients on business-related tax matters, especially on transactions and restructurings.
My practice has a strong focus on corporate income tax matters. Over the years I have developed specific expertise in the accounting and tax treatment of transactions and restructurings. Due to my complementary practice in tax disputes, I also assist clients during tax audits and represent them before the tax administration and courts.
Prior to joining Bird & Bird in 2022, I worked for four years in the tax department of big four accounting firms, advising Belgian and international clients on corporate income tax matters, mainly on R&D tax incentives, dividend received deduction regime, withholding tax exemptions, interest deduction limitation rules, as well as on the application of the Belgian tax consolidation regime. I also assisted clients for due diligences and advance tax ruling procedures.
I also worked six years as a lawyer in a Belgian law firm, where I advised clients on all tax-related matters and provided them with full assistance in tax disputes.
