RSM strengthens outsourcing team with new director

Joost will have a national focus, driving the growth of the Global VAT Compliance and Reporting team with UK, European and US multinational businesses.

RSM UK has appointed Joost Willemsen as director and global VAT compliance and reporting leader within its national outsourcing team.

Joost joins RSM from KPMG in London, where he gained four years’ experience within global indirect tax compliance, with a particular focus on related technology and analytical offerings.

Prior to this, he was a senior indirect tax adviser at KPMG Meijburg and Co in Eindhoven, Netherlands for six years. Joost has extensive VAT expertise in a range of sectors, including retail, healthcare and education.

According to the firm, previous clients include FTSE100 listed retailers and manufacturers, and Top 20 largest global banks, insurers and asset management companies.

In his new role, based out of the firm’s Cambridge office, Joost will have a national focus, driving the growth of the Global VAT Compliance and Reporting team with UK, European and US multinational businesses.

Joost will support the outsourcing team by expanding both UK and global long-term annuity engagements, which can be leveraged into new opportunities, predominantly for the UK VAT practice.

Joost said: “I am honoured to lead the Global VAT Compliance and Reporting team. There’s a real opportunity here to own and grow the team and I look forward to making that happen.”

Ian Sadler, partner and head of RSM’s outsourcing practice, added: “The appointment of Joost allows us to drive forward one of our key global outsourcing practises with an ever-greater focus on automation, efficiency and driving value out of our processes. Joost’s wealth of experience makes him a great addition to the team, and we are thrilled to have him on board.”
