Our company

Since 1986 worldwide and for over 15 years in Belgium, Ayming offers the best of both worlds: we are member of an international Business Performance Consulting group with about 1.300 employees, working in 15 countries, combined with a strong start-up spirit for our Brussels based entity.

Our objective in Finance Performance

Our goal is to identify and evaluate tax reductions for our clients according to the laws in force and thus reduce the amount of their tax returns. We focus on 3 specific areas: the industrial tool (real estate tax on equipment and tools), real estate (cadastral income, regional taxes and municipal taxes on buildings) and the VAT flow (compliance).

Your tasks and responsibilities

In charge of your own customer portfolio, you implement your expertise to optimize the real estate and industrial taxation of your customers, which you monitor and develop. You propose tailor-made solutions to reduce the base and benefit from tax reductions provided by law.

More concretely:

  • After a complete training, you will become an expert in the different Belgian national, regional and local taxes.
  • As from the beginning, you regularly visit clients to collect information on their organization and activities, and to conduct finance performance audits focusing on tax.
  • You verify the correct application of tax regulations to your clients’ case, whether your clients have made optimal use of tax reductions or exemptions at their disposal and evaluate if there are tax optimization possibilities. You also look for new tax optimization opportunities.
  • You do research on and analyze the tax regulations under review and, where useful or necessary, you write internal summarizing memos for the benefit of your department. You act as point of contact when it is required to consult with an external tax law firm.
  • You write a report to your clients including your conclusion on the different possibilities to optimize their national, regional and local tax charge and your proposed practical way forward.
  • You support your client in and follow up on the correct implementation of your recommendations. This includes dealing with the different governmental bodies, preparing claims or requests, and defending these before the competent authority.
  • You keep good relations with all parties involved, including the various Belgian governmental bodies, competent authorities (federal, regional, provincial or communal) and external tax law firms.
  • You execute projects from start to finish, including the administrative side.
  • You keep on top of and analyze evolutions in the European national, regional and local regulatory framework and case law, and understand what these mean for your clients.
  • You help transforming ideas into practical business opportunities.
  • While you do not have to prospect or actively increase your client portfolio, it is your responsibility to help secure our business by establishing a long lasting trusted business relationship with your clients.
  • As your experience and expertise grow, your responsibilities will grow too.
