On nice days, I perform many varied tasks, and I’m in contact with clients.

Days on which there is little variety in my tasks are less enjoyable to me.

Firsthand experience

The client has requested a monthly handling of the accounts and wants to know how their company performs compared to other companies in their industry. What to do?

The client is curious to know how their business is doing and how to reap possible tax benefits.

After handling the client’s accounts, it is clear how their company has performed. In the digital MijnABAB portal, the client has insight into their figures. You perform an analysis on the figures and a comparison with the industy. You point out to the entrepreneur at which points they perform above and below average. You also identify opportunities for return improvement. Additionally, you ensure that you provide a fiscal perspective in the last quarter to still reap tax benefits during the fiscal year.

Based on your findings, you provide the client with advice, monitor the impact of their efforts, and give them feedback. And at a fiscal level, you provide advice on how the small-scale investment deduction and work-related expense scheme can be used optimally.


Training and personal growth are of paramount importance to ABAB. We have developed a Young Professional Program that is closely aligned with the training to become an accountant with signing rights. This involves subject-specific knowledge as well as the development of other competencies.
