Bart O’Toole, Founder

Bart has worked in the field of international VAT for over twenty years.

His initial focus was on the area of cross-border VAT recovery; but, through his experience with clients, he came to believe that a different and better type of cross-border VAT service provider was possible.

With his colleagues David Stokes and Nicholas Hallam, Bart established Accordance in 2006. The company was designed to offer a full range of cross-border VAT services – from compliance reporting, through consulting project work, to VAT recovery – with expert consultants at the heart of the operation, guiding and influencing all the company’s activities.

Bart works with Nicholas Hallam and the Senior Management Team on defining the company’s goals and strategy. He is a long time member of the International VAT Association.
