Efraim Brouwer Senior Tax Advisor

Efraim Brouwer

Personal quote / vision

In my role, I try to approach tax issues by not only looking at current law, but also considering the (historical) context and underlying purpose of the law. By approaching the issue from a helicopter view, new insights or good alternatives often come to light. This is in the client's interest, and also leads to a correct and effective approach to the parties the client is dealing with.
