Erik Van Engelen RA returns to Sint Maarten to join Baker Tilly SXM
As per August 2018, registered accountant Erik van Engelen will be joining Baker Tilly Sint Maarten. Baker Tilly Sint Maarten, as part of Baker Tilly Dutch Caribbean, has been serving the local community with tax advice, payroll- and accountancy services since 2012. With the addition of Erik to the team, the umbrella of services now also covers financial auditing & advisory.
Erik started working for Baker Tilly Dutch Caribbean in Curacao in February 2018. His move to Sint Maarten was already planned before hurricanes Irma and Maria struck the island. These plans were delayed after the hurricanes, but as soon as the opportunity arose, he stepped up the plate to help Sint Maarten. Given his governmental- and financial supervision background, Erik hopes to contribute to a more trustworthy relationship between the governments of Sint Maarten and the Kingdom Council of ministers (e.g. Dutch Government) and of course facilitate all different types of accounting services.
Erik has worked and lived on Sint. Maarten before. In 2012 he moved to the island to start up and lead the office of the Board of financial supervision (Cft) in Frontstreet. He therefore has a broad experience with public finance as well as with government owned entities. He also serviced Sint Maarten as an auditor from Curacao for PwC between 2004 and 2008.
Baker Tilly Sint Maarten is one of three auditing firms with offices and staff on Sint Maarten. From this location services are also rendered on Saba and St. Eustatius.
The Sint Maarten business community is warmly invited to stop by the Baker Tilly Sint Maarten office for an exploratory discussion about accounting, auditing or fiscal needs with Erik and the rest of the team. Also, we welcome all jobseekers in accounting or tax to pass by and meet the team!
