Tax representative & compliance specialist
Steven Diepenhorst is responsible, via the subsidiary VAT Fiscal Representatives Holland BV, for providing our tax representative services. Steven has the necessary experience to take care of both the registration procedure and the periodic obligations of the represented companies.
In addition to his work in providing tax representative services, Steven conducts VAT analyses for DHK. The purpose of these analyses is to show clearly and responsibly how much VAT an organisation can reclaim and how much VAT the organisation must pay. VAT analyses are particularly relevant for large or complex organisations that engage in (partially) exempt transactions and must calculate a pro rata. A recurring topic is also the calculation of “integration” VAT. For these VAT analyses, he uses a fixed method that enables calculations to be made in an efficient and verifiable manner. In this way, the VAT analysis forms an appropriate means for obtaining a ruling from the Dutch Tax & Customs Administration (TCA: Belastingdienst).
Steven first started work in taxation in 2006, in the Income Tax (Profit) and Corporate Income Tax compliance department at Mazars Paardekooper Hoffman N.V.. While working there, he completed the Chartered Tax Consultant training.
In 2010 Steven moved to DHK. He is a native speaker of Dutch, is fluent in English and has a good command of German.
