Taxand is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris van Wijngaarden as the new leader of Taxand’s global compensation tax service line. Chris is based at Taxand Netherlands where he specialises in employee benefits and equity incentive plans as well as cross border taxation and employee social security issues.

He advises several multinational and domestic listed and non-listed companies in a variety of industries.

He graduated in Tax Law from the University of Amsterdam in 2002. Before joining Taxand Netherlands he started his career at Arthur Andersen / Deloitte.

Taxand’s global compensation tax  team provides multinationals with an integrated service combining tax, legal, financial and human resources expertise to meet employee remuneration requirements. Tax efficient incentive plans and global tax compliance are vital if maximum value is to be achieved for employers and employees. Tax, legal and regulatory rules are increasingly complex and constantly changing. Additionally as tax authorities across the globe co-operate ever more, companies need to take even greater care to achieve compliance across borders.

Compensation tax is one of Taxand’s nine global service lines.  Others include international tax, indirect tax, tax dispute resolution, transfer pricing & business restructuring, M&A tax, real estate tax and individual tax.
