In an increasingly global and transparent world, safeguarding your international tax matters is essential to any business looking to expand across borders or anyone contemplating investing or migrating abroad. Sansen International Tax Lawyers is a boutique firm taking care of all your foreign tax planning through a professional, yet unmatched, personal approach.
Established in September 2014, Antwerpbased firm Sansen International Tax Lawyers (SITL) focuses on international tax law in all its aspects, for a variety of target groups. The firm is founded and helmed by Erik Sansen who, after many years working for other firms, decided to invest his experience and knowledge in his own law firm.
SITL provides a unique personal service, alongside a hands-on, accessible approach, partly because of the firm’s small size. “Before everything else, I see myself as a client’s trusted advisor,” Sansen starts. “Our small team creates a climate of mutual trust, whereby my clients know that everything will be taken care of. Building strong personal connections to our clients and their business is vital: I have been working with the same clients for years.”
SITL has an extensive international network of highly skilled foreign tax advisers, ensuring every client is provided with the right contacts and connections. “Not only is our society globalising more and more; our world is getting more transparent as well,” Sansen affirms. “This means that being accurate and clear about your taxes is more important than ever. The maze of tax law is a complicated one: having a trusted advisor who guides you all the way through it is essential. We do just that.”
