Jo has worked as a tax consultant since 1995, advising various (multinational) companies. As a tax manager, he has provided personal income tax, corporation tax, inheritance and financial planning services. From 2008 the focus has shifted to succession planning particularly business transition. At a former leading Belgian estate planner, Jo was one of the driving forces behind the M&A Family Business Department. Jo also covers the legal aspects of business transfer, as business transfer involves much more than purely tax matters. Since 2008, Jo has advised numerous businesses on the succession and transfer of their businesses.
