1 x B&R server at site A (VM)
1 x Proxy server at site A (VM)
1x QNAP NAS presented via iSCSI to proxy and assigned as repository for local backup.
Currently there is a domain controller at site B that is very under utilized and just used to serve DNS and login requests for the users at that site. I have created a folder on the local disk (for testing) and made this a repository for our off site backups. Everything works well and Veeam fully utilizes the WAN link between the site.
My question is would I get better performance (compression and de-dup) if I had a proxy at the remote site or does this not make a difference?

Veeam B&R is using two-agent based architecture. And all of features like throttling rules, compression, etc, are implemented between them.
In case of remote replication, these features would be implemented between two proxy servers; in case of backup, between a backup proxy and a repository; in case of backup to an SMB share between a backup proxy and a proxying Windows server.
So, as Luca has already said, compression is being used already, thus, there wouldn’t be any performance improvement by adding remote proxy server.
Hope this helps.
