Bart advises clients, mainly large (international) corporations, on a broad range of indirect tax matters, focusing on the more complex VAT issues. As such, he frequently advocates on behalf of clients before the tax authorities, for example in case of a tax audit, and has gained broad experience in settling tax disputes, assisting with voluntary disclosures and obtaining advance certainty on indirect tax issues.

A frequent speaker within his field of expertise, Bart is associated as a (guest) lecturer with various universities and post-graduate courses. He contributes regularly to books and professional journals on indirect tax topics. Bart holds a PhD in fiscal economics.
