Jan van Besien, Of Counsel, Corporate Tax

Jan van Besien, Of Counsel, Corporate Tax, Fieldfisher

I am an expert in tax matters with over 25 years' experience spent advising various taxpayers and/or assisting them in litigations.

I have particular expertise in tax litigation, VAT and corporate income tax. I have pleaded before most of the courts in Belgium and before the European Court of Justice. 

I have written many articles about tax law and a book about tax litigation, and contributed to tax handbooks and surveys of VAT case law. I am one of the co-founders of an important Belgian tax periodical (Tijdschrift voor Fiscaal Recht).

I am fluent in Dutch, French and English.

In my spare time I can be found in my garden, on a bicycle, at the beach or enjoying music. I like to read about history, geography and art.
