I have used Broadstreet for around 10 years for tax purposes within Holland. I found them knowledgable, responsive and very professional. I would highly recommend them as an expat tax service.

Having been bounced around a few tax advisors and almost got my self in hot water by being told the wrong thing, I got a recommendation from another person who had a similar business structure to me. The Broadstreet advisor was efficient and thorough and provided a comprehensive and understandable summary of how to deal with my situation. Relocating between regimes with complex tax laws is never going to be straightforward, at least these guys do put the effort in ... beware of others who will make a suggestion and then disappear when it goes haywire!

Great services,thorough and real professionals. As an expat I highly recommend Broadstreet. I had some issues with my tax and they manage to solved the problem avoiding a penalty fee. If you don't want to worry about the complex Dutch Tax, I recommend to leave it on their hands to be sort it for you.

Absolutely HORRIBLE firm. Rude people and totally unknowledgeable. It took another firm a year to fix all the issues/mistakes Broadstreet made on my taxes and 30 application. They tried to charge me additional fees to fix their mistakes.DO NOT RECOMMEND AVOID AT ALL COSTS

As other reviewers have mentioned, transparency regarding pricing is a big issue with them... It seems like my experience was not an isolated case... They were very responsive in the beginning when trying to get me on board, after that not so much... Definitely lacking quality and professionalism. Not good value, certainly overpriced...

Been using Broadstreet services for many years now, for different topics such as business and private. Always responsive, good follow up. A good partner I trust for their advices too. I'd like to add business relationship comes down to human relationship. A big plus to Elizabeth Bouwer for her support who is always helping me. Highly recommended.

I had a great experience dealing with Broadstreet. Everyone I spoke to were super nice and helpful. They were patient with me gathering so many documents for my application and they made sure my application was complete for better chances of getting the 30% ruling. I highly recommend their services.

I have had a good experience setting up a BV as an expat recently arrived here. Their advice was solid and they have introduced me to other suppliers including a notary and an immigration lawyer who have been very useful and professional, with all working well as a team. They are also really fast at responding which I have realised is not the norm here. Would recommend.

My family moved to the Netherlands and needed cross-border tax expertise for both our NL business and our personal income taxes. Broadstreet was an exceptionally good partner, making the tax planning and execution aspects of our move and U.S. repatriation seamless and worry-free for us. Broadstreet's deep knowledge of complex cross-border tax matters, ability to work with our U.S. CPA, efficient online systems and processes and superb responsiveness made us a very happy client. I would wholeheartedly recommend Broadstreet to other clients in our situation.

We couldn't recommend them. They will do their best to get you on board but after awhile they will send you over price invoices. We had a terrible experience with this company.
