Mark Lucas Luijckx Partner | Member of the Executive Board
The tax landscape and the role of tax adviser have changed enormously over the past years. Organisations need to be more market focussed and more client focussed. More than ever do we need to take into account the public opinion. Mazars experiences an increase in the regulatory burden imposed by the government and equally needs to comply with more stringent requirements on the implementation of our activities. It is important to chart a proper course which is determined by quality, knowledge, professionalism and integrity.
Education and work experience
- Leiden university – LL.M in Dutch law and Fiscal law
- Nyenrode Business University – Professional Services Management
- Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA)
In 1997 I started in the Estate Planning department of Mazars in Rotterdam. I have been a partner in our organisation since 2006. I am specialised in advising private clients. In 2012 I joined the international Mazars Tax Executive Board (Mazars Group), where I was responsible for developing tax and the international owner-managed business market. Between 2014 and 2016 I was Deputy Head of Tax within the Mazars Group. I worked on integrating and developing new tax practices in individual Mazars countries.
Executive Board Mazars in the Netherlands
In September 2016 I joined the Executive Board. Alongside my advisory activities for private clients, I will chart the course in our changing tax landscape. My primary responsibillitiy within the board is the Tax Service Line. As Mazars Tax and as trusted advisers of our clients, we can create sustainable value for our clients with our knowledge and expertise.
Within my practice I focus on advising high net worth individuals in the widest sense of the word, particularly in the area of national and international estate planning and tax planning.
Specific client experience
High net worth individuals often operate at national and international level and need advice on pre-immigration or emigration planning, tax compliance, family governance and asset protection. Our working method is a top-down approach, where we start with the natural person and move down to the active company.
As I am personally dedicated to making a social contribution, I am an active Board member of a number of charities. In that role I try to contribute to achieve the objectives of the charities.
Furthermore, I also work as an editor and/or contributor for several tax magazines and I am a lecture at the Dutch Association of Tax Advisers.
