Profile
To some extent, Dirk Coveliers has taken a less conventional career path. After a 3-year traineeship at the Antwerp Bar, Dirk worked as a tax specialist in the financial sector for over 25 years (Generale Bank - Fortis Bank - Petercam - Degroof Petercam). In February 2016, Dirk returned to the Bar and, in October 2017, he joined Tiberghien where he practises in the Estate - and Banking & Finance department.

Dirk puts his knowledge and practical experience to effective use by advising: Belgian and foreign financial institutions (about the withholding tax, stock exchange tax, exchange of information); the funds industry (regarding the tax on savings, subscription tax, DTI-SICAVs); and other institutional clients and high net worth individuals. Dirk also has deep expertise in recent developments in investment taxation (such as the Cayman Tax, and the tax on securities accounts). Clients can expect Dirk to provide a practical approach and effective assistance concerning the implementation of (new) laws and regulations.

For many years, Dirk has been a valued staff member of the 'Fiscoloog' newsletter and, since 2017, he has been the co-founder and editor-in-chief of a journal specialised in investment taxation (available in Dutch and French). He also lectures on Investment and Savings' Tax at the Antwerp Management School.

In addition, Dirk has an interest in matters concerning (international) estate and inheritance planning. Finally, Dirk is an active member of the Study and Legislation Committee within the Royal Federation of Belgian Notaries.
