A tax boutique founded in 2013
We use our deep knowledge of domestic and international tax law (including EU tax law) to clarify and solve complicated tax issues. We do this efficiently and decisively, with optimism and dedication. Complex problems can only be solved if they are made simple first. For this reason, our firm has a strong academic profile. Our team members have ample experience in the judiciary and tax consultancy.
What we do
Lubbers, Boer & Douma makes complex tax questions and risks transparent and manageable. We provide solutions. Our (second) opinions or fiscal analyses can be used to determine whether all relevant arguments were considered during the advisory process, whether a settlement offer proposed by the tax authorities should be accepted or to determine what chances of success a tax court proceeding may have. We also act as a sounding board for fiscal or strategic questions, supervise extensive audits and review or write (procedural) documents. In addition, we represent clients in disputes, for example in arbitration proceedings, mutual agreement procedures or discussions with the tax authorities. Going forward, we provide tax advice in non-tax motivated situations.
At Lubbers, Boer & Douma, a personal approach is the key priority. Clients can rely on our full commitment. When dealing with the tax authorities, our strategy is not to delay and obstruct, but to purposefully work on a solution as favorable as possible for our client. If necessary, we will litigate up to to the Supreme Court and the Court of Justice of the European Union.
It is our mission to provide the highest quality in everything we do. We are not satisfied until we have been able to prove our added value and to help our client with an argument, reasoning or solution they had not thought of themselves. It is always the end result of our advice which counts.
Our clients are large or very large (multinational) enterprises, organizations serving the general interest and high-net-worth individuals. Furthermore, we advise renowned tax advisory and law firms in the Netherlands and abroad.
Our expertise and practical experience extends to nearly all aspects of material and procedural (inter)national and European tax law, including:
- Personal and corporate income tax
- Fiscal profit determination (for example taxable public undertakings)
- Trusts, private fund foundations etc.
- Inheritance and gift taxes
- Administrative (procedural) law, including tax penalties
- Dividend withholding tax and other withholding taxes
- International tax treaty law
- European tax law (including fiscal state aid issues)
