As stated in our Code of Conduct and in our Tax Governance Code, we apply the highest professional standards in everything we do. We honour and obey the laws, professional standards and regulations that apply to us. We keep abreast of societal developments and shifting public opinion that may impact our work.
We have implemented a Matter Acceptance & Assessment Committee (MAC) to function as an advisory body and sounding board on whether we should accept certain instructions and projects or advise on certain matters. In making this assessment the MAC also takes the NOB Tax Principles as well as other relevant rules and principles of applicable professional associations including the applicable bar rules as guiding principles. The MAC may also be approached to render advice in case of a possible inconsistency between the principles of the Tax Governance Code and the rules and principles of the local professional associations including the applicable bar rules.
