We are Kees-Jan Nielen and Gert van de Laar, the founders of NL accountants. We have both worked for one of the Big Four, the four largest international accountancy firms. We are glad we learned our trade there by working within the complex settings of multinational and listed enterprises.

But we wanted to strike out on our own and so we took the plunge. We decided to do something that nobody had done before. We wanted to assist the same clients and continue working on the same kind of issues, but in our own way– by taking a personal approach and focusing on effective dialogue with the client, by offering solutions that add real value for companies, and by being passionate about our work for our clients, so that they and we are (and remain) satisfied with the final result. You can only deliver top quality if you customise your approach.

That remains NL accountants’ mission and it’s what makes us unique and successful. Even the Big Four regularly ask us for help.

A broad and wide-ranging client portfolio, challenging assignments, and a team of talented people – all these factors make NL accountants a dream come true for us, day after day.
