This job in a nutshell

Welcome to the BDO family, a worldwide consulting firm where you can bring your own personality to your job! We help organisations grow sustainably with our expertise in audit & assurance, tax & legal, advisory and accountancy.


At BDO, you are not just a number. Your wellbeing and development are just as important to us as the personal, hands-on advice and pragmatic solutions we offer our clients. Because as you grow, so do we and so do our clients. That is why our slogan is 'Let's Grow Together'!


Got a background in Tax and love to specialise in VAT and Customs?
Make your career count as a Junior VAT & Customs Consultant at BDO Antwerp!

What will you be doing?

After your start-up and training period, you will join a team of seasoned professionals who advise business managers and financial management on their VAT & Customs policies.


More specifically, you’ll:

• Advise clients on VAT, customs and excise-related issues, both in a national and international context
• Consult with our organisation's specialists in subfields of taxation to provide clients with optimal advice
• Work on files in close collaboration with company auditors and accountants
• Contribute to the development and optimisation of existing client relationships
• Offer business managers and financial management pragmatic advice on the tax and legal aspects of their policies, taking a proactive, highly engaged approach
• Get involved in customs screenings at logistic service providers and customs representatives.
• Assist during in-company client training organised by BDO Customs Academy.


As a Tax consultant, you keep close track of all the latest tax news to be able to ensure optimally efficient operations at all times. Thanks to our BDO Academy, you can continue developing your professional knowledge, supplemented by external training opportunities.

What do you bring to the table?

• You insist on accuracy and love diving into all the details.
• You are happy to take the initiative and present new ideas, but also receptive to your colleagues' points of view. You keep them informed and team spirit is the way to go for you.
• Juggling multiple deadlines during busy VAT return periods or dealing with several different files on the same day? You mastered the required flexibility long ago.
• Stress? What’s that? You are good at setting priorities and delivering work on time is not a problem for you.
• You always stay up to date on the latest tax developments. You enjoy learning new things and attending seminars, conferences and events.
• The training courses by BDO Customs Academy are approved by official customs authorities. This gives you the possibility to follow tailor-made training courses. Knowledge of customs is consequently not required, a healthy interest in this topic is of course.
• BDO Customs Academy regularly organises training moments for external customs managers. You'll also be able to attend these sessions.
• You have a Master’s degree or already have previous (internship) experience.
• You write and speak Dutch fluently and also have proficiency in French and English.

What do we bring to the table?

  • Start in a general position and discover which types of clients, duties or specialisations suit you best. After the starters days, you will build your own career along with your other new colleagues. 
  • Take on increasing amounts of responsibility as the rest of your team stands by, ready to support you. 
  • BDO Academy’s extensive list of training courses helps you grow both personally and professionally. 
  • Sample projects from other Business Practices through our “flex pool”. 
  • Options to work from home or from the nearest office, for example, and flexible working hours. 
  • A competitive salary package with many attractive benefits such as a net expense allowance, company car, mobile phone plan, hospitalisation insurance, etc. 
  • Work at a company with an integrated sustainability policy on issues such as climate impact and equality, diversity and inclusion, which actively contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
