Meijburg & Co Caribbean is a knowledge organization. Our priority is the dissemination of first-rate knowledge and we invest considerable time and effort in doing this.

The tax field has been − and still is − undergoing major change as a result of globalization and changes to national and international legislation and regulations. The tax practice is not only becoming more knowledge‑intensive, but increasingly much more is being demanded of the modern tax specialist with respect to their commercial approach, leadership and management.

For a knowledge organization such as Meijburg & Co Caribbean it is essential that we offer our tax specialists the opportunity to adequately respond to these changing and demanding circumstances. Meijburg & Co Caribbean pays particular attention to the development and maintenance of knowledge. The key factor in this is being able to offer a complete practical package of top quality courses and training programs. This provides the specialists at Meijburg & Co Caribbean the career opportunity to develop into leading advisors on national and international tax law.

Knowledge is the intellectual capital of our organization. Meijburg & Co Caribbean has deliberately chosen to use knowledge sharing as an instrument to improve productivity and the quality of our services. Encouraging knowledge sharing ensures that people remain motivated and open. Of course, our close collaboration with Meijburg & Co in the Netherlands contributes to this; a collaboration based on the age-old adage that knowledge is power. Growth and innovation through self-development in order to become leaders in our field.
