    Juraj Fabuš - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    I would highly recommend Orange Tax Services for any business owner looking for expert accounting, efficiency and excellence. Arnold and his team makes a refreshing change from the dull, grey accountant stereotype because they’re not just good with numbers, they’re good with people too.

  • Hala Abu-Jaber – 30% ruling claimant

    Hala Abu-Jaber - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    I am extremely satisfied with the level of service I received from Orange Tax Services. Not only are they very diligent with their work, but they also possess excellent customer service and are always available for any query you may have. As a foreigner in the Netherlands, it felt great to receive such expert advice especially with regards to the 30% ruling, which, thanks to Orange Tax Services, I have been granted. I am currently in the process of buying a house in the Netherlands and there is no doubt that Orange Tax will be my go-to tax advisers for the tax implications involved with a home purchase in the Netherlands. Great value for money! I highly recommend them!

  • Maaike Verdonkschot – runs EBC Amsterdam

    Maaike Verdonkschot and team ECB - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    We offer companies to either locate here at our EBC Amsterdam office on the Keizersgracht, or use our virtual office solutions with the use of meeting rooms. A business centre like ours offers offices for flexible periods of time, whereas the common lease of an office in the Netherlands is a five-year period. If your business grows, you basically grow into a lease problem. A problem you do not have with our flexible solutions. We do this with style and that sets us apart from our competitors. Arnold Waal I have known since the mid 90’s when he was a junior tax advisor working opposite the EBC Amsterdam. Since 2005 Arnold’s company, Orange Tax Services, is a much-appreciated client of EBC Amsterdam. We have the opinion Arnold and his team are experienced tax advisors, hands-on and eager to assist you with tax matters. Many people think tax is boring, but Arnold advocates that tax is exciting!

  • Sarah Brown – 30% ruling claimant

    Sarah Brown - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    I moved to NL for a tax-free position with an international organization, and after 5 years transferred to a local Dutch employer. Orange Tax successfully requested the 30% rule for me, as I was originally brought to NL for specialized work and would have qualified for the 30% ruling, but it was not necessary as my salary was not subject to tax. I was able to receive the 30% for the remaining eligible years, which has been a great benefit to both me and my employer. Arnold’s expertise, availability, and willingness to take on a unique case was above and beyond what I expected and well beyond my experience with other tax services. For any future tax needs I will go directly to Orange Tax Services and cannot recommend them highly enough.

    I am a Dutch national working for international development organizations, always abroad. Three years ago I moved back to The Netherlands. An expat colleague suggested that I get in touch with Arnold Waal to discuss tax issues related to repatriation. The contact with Orange Tax Services was very efficient and friendly. I am very satisfied with the excellent professional services of Arnold and his team. They work fast and with good results.

  • Jubin Majlessi – Associate Partner at Infosys Lodestone

    Jubin Majlessi - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    As an expat, entrepreneur and consultant in the Financial Services industry, I have to be able to rely on an efficient and accessible book keeping and tax service. Orange Tax Services has successfuly provided me with that security for 5 years, consisting of solid advice and same day responses to my ad hoc queries. Often in the Netherlands, an international calibre service is hard to find, but with Orange, there is no need to look further.

    As President of Starbucks Coffee Company EMEA and Chairman and CEO of V&D in the Netherlands between 2001 and 2013 I was supported in all my personal tax affairs by Arnold CJ Waal and his team at Orange Tax Services. The advice, efficiency and proactivity to manage my tax affairs was always of the highest professional standard and I would highly recommend to any ex-patriot visiting the Netherlands for business the services of Arnold and his Orange Tax Services team.

  • Manuela Oberegger – Lewry Technical Services Europe AG

    Manuela Oberegger - satisfied client of Orange Tax Services

    We are a Swiss company having a few employees working in Holland. Since 2009 Orange Tax Services has been supporting us on a very professional basis. Orange Tax Services helped us to set everything up in Holland (including Bank accounts) and acts on our behalf with the Belastingdienst. They provide pay slips for the employees, declare their salaries to the tax office and do all reports needed. Orange Tax Services keep us informed of any relevant Dutch news that could concern us. They always reply promptly to any question we have and we are very happy with the quality of the service they provide.
