    Jean-Paul van ‘t Hof

    The way Jean Paul sees it, he doesn't work for but with his clients. As a partner and an ally. He likes to know what motivates you and he throws himself into your issues so that he can find the best solutions for you. With personalised advice and tailored solutions.

    'As a consultant in the expat and wage tax & social security contributions practice, guiding employers and employees is a daily task. My starting point is always that clients are not only advised but also helped. Preferably with smart solutions that suit specific circumstances. That’s possible only if I really dig into a client's situation. And that means I don't always recommend the same course of action. Personal contact doesn't get in the way of a good solution. It actually reinforces it. My children would agree with me on that point.'

    Olav Kremers

    Olav has a huge love for his profession and for figures. Don't ask why, but his favourite numbers are 24 and 142857. He’s driven by the magic of the figures and the people he works for.

    'I think it’s important that my recommendations can be applied in practice. I always bear this in mind, whether I'm advising multinationals or supporting customers during a tax audit conducted by the tax authorities. Over the last few years I've been involved mostly with the wage tax aspects of employers and employees who perform cross-border work. I handle the Dutch salary administration for several foreign companies. It gives me a lot of pleasure, I must say. It keeps me young and moving with the times, though my three children help do that too.

    Martijn Bedaux

    Whether he's working with his team on a complex tax issue or pursuing a practical solution alone for a client, he does it with a great deal of pleasure. Each and every day. Seeing what the entire Courdid team achieves makes him very happy.

    `I focus on tax advice for expats and on wage tax & social security contributions for internationally oriented employers and employees. I'm solutions-orientated and believe good accessibility and personal attention is very important. I also speak regularly in public for groups of employees, HR departments and tax professionals about interesting tax issues and hot topics. And if I have any energy left, you'll find me on the golf course or on the waves with my kite.

    Marlies loves working with clients to find the right solutions in a way that is both personal and professional. This always results in tailored advice that is carefully considered. In other words, solutions that take clients where they want to go. Marlies specialises in immigration.

    `I like to keep up with what is happening in society and I enjoy the dynamics of my work. I advise and support large international companies on legal employment and legal residency in the Netherlands. This involves requesting and obtaining permits and advising on immigration procedures for employees and their family members. I have qualifications in labour migration, immigration law, labour law and global mobility. I enjoy working in a professional, social and dynamic world.'

    Neetu den Boer-Singh

    Neetu is excellent at translating complex issues into simple and practical solutions. It's why she fits in so well at Courdid. Her enthusiasm for work and her commitment to clients inspires us all.

    'My passion is for tax issues and helping customers. At Courdid, I'm responsible for the compliance practice, and I advise expats, director-major shareholders and high-net-worth individuals on international mobility. I also get involved with compensation & benefit questions and variable reward schemes for employees, such as bonus and share plans. For some, this is a complex matter, which is why I strive to make it as understandable as possible. Helping customers to the best of my ability is what drives me. Away from work, I love traveling with my husband and three daughters.'

    Rik van den Braak

    Rik may be our youngest team member, but he's already handled some interesting issues. And once he gets hold of something, he’s like the proverbial dog with a bone: he doesn't let go quickly. But perhaps that has something to do with Krav Maga, the modern sport of self-defence that he practices.

    'While I was studying for my degree in Fiscal Economics, I became interested in international tax issues that related to wage and income tax. Now I'm doing a master's in Fiscal Law with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam while working for Courdid. My job involves compiling tax returns, preparing appeals and providing general support for the partners. And when I'm not working, you'll find me at the gym or in the bar with my friends. A great combination for that extra boost of energy.'

    Loredana Costin

    With Loredana, we have a real thrill-seeker in the office. And that's not only because she's crazy about snowboarding and climbing. Even at work, she seeks out challenges and action.

    `What I enjoy about tax issues are their complexities and their constant legal and regulatory changes. I love puzzles and looking for solutions, whether I'm doing tax returns, giving advice on the 30% ruling or delving into aspects of emigration, immigration and other international tax issues. I never run away from a challenge. In fact, I enjoy looking for them. Not only at work but also at home. Snowboarding and climbing give me the thrills I need, but I also love going for a walk along the beach with my family.'

    Josephine van Eck

    Josephine is the face of Courdid. She’s a tower of strength, too. If you call us, the chances are she'll be the one picking up the phone. And, in all likelihood, she'll have helped you before she puts through you to one of her colleagues.

    'As first point of contact, I believe it's down to me to represent Courdid to the outside world. That's why I like to do more than provide only telephone support. I help our tax specialists draw up tax returns and 30% rulings, and sometimes I assist with relocation cases that are the result of a client taking on expats or foreign local hirers. I think it's important to stay informed and to be organised. Sitting still isn't in my vocabulary. I'm the same at home. I travel, exercise and like to cook for my boyfriend, friends and family. It makes for a full but enjoyable agenda.’

    Jan Bloks

    During his studies Jan discovered that his passion is to assist employers and employees in cross-border situations. He provides clarity in the ‘jungle’ of international wage and income tax.

     ‘It is my objective to provide the best approach to translating the complexity of cross-border working into practice. I believe the impact for the client and its employees should be minimized. It is the personal aspect of my work that most appeals to me, and fortunately I find this both in my compliance and my advisory work. In addition, I try to achieve my personal objectives during tennis and running.'
