I love my job because
Tax law unites the best of both worlds: both the figures and interpreting the letter of the law. Many of our clients talk passionately about their companies. You get involved in it, and would like to present them with something good. But also working in multidisciplinary teams on M&A projects is exciting and dynamic. This variety, finding good solutions, and working with entrepreneurs and professionals are what make my work fascinating.
For me, good tax advice is
A well thought-out solution that the client understands.
Because a lot is possible here. In principle, you can create your own path and development. As a student, you are quickly thrown in the deep end and do things that you would only do much later at the Big Four. You are immediately part of the whole thing. Everyone gets along easily and feels on equal terms.
Advice to newcomers to the profession
Listen closely to what the client is looking for and make sure that your advice fits it, both in terms of form and content.
