Wim Vermeulen is one of the leading real estate tax experts in Belgium, not only for investments and estate planning in Belgium but also for acquisitions and planning abroad, something that is fairly unique in Belgium.
Wim holds a Masters in Commercial Engineering from the Catholic University of Leuven and the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. He is also a Master of Laws (KU Leuven). He is a lawyer at the Brussels Bar. His native language is Dutch, but he also speaks French and English.
Wim is your real estate tax specialist at Cazimir, where he leads this practice area.
Besides, he is one of the few lawyers in Belgium specialised in assisting clients who wish to acquire real estate abroad.
In 2018, together with his team, he developed a separate platform to serve international clients with specific advice, namely Cazimir International, with a strong focus on full service emigration and immigration cases.
Wim has authored several books, publishes in tax journals and newspapers, and is a much requested guest speaker on (international) real estate taxation and inheritance planning.
He lectures on ' Aspects of international Real estate taxation' at the Fiscale Hogeschool and regularly speaks at international conferences about his specialism. Finally, he already has a special placement in Chambers online Rankings Guides as "outstanding lawyer".
“What happens beyond our borders, and how these things impact us as well, is not only a complex matter, but fascinating and closer to home than we often believe. Belgian and Europan borders merely exist in our minds... and in the, more and more non-coordinated international law and legislation.”
Wim is a true epicurean who never misses an opportunity to try good food and exceptional wines. He travels the world in search of culinary highlights!
In addition, he is committed to the youth in his community of Tienen, in particular by letting underprivileged children engage in activities and sports that they cannot do for financial reasons.
