  • Making inheritance tax calculations;
  • Preparation of all kinds of deeds and agreements tailored to the client (donation, will, partnership, foundation, etc.);
  • Preparation of estate tax returns.

You are also responsible for monitoring (legislative) developments in the relevant areas of law and for writing articles on inheritance planning for websites and publications.

What do you bring to the table?

  • You (will) have a Master in Law, preferably with an additional degree in Taxation, Notarial Law and/or Company Law;
  • You have a passion for estate planning;
  • You have a dynamic personality with drive, commitment and a pragmatic attitude;

  • Culture: you will join a family of experts who encourage respect, diversity and teamwork. You work in an open culture, so feel free to speak to anyone, at any level
  • Development: you decide the direction of your career, and we support you where necessary. Our BDO Academy provides a whole range of training courses to help.

  • Wellbeing: your physical and mental health is important to us.
