Whether you are expanding your business globally or improving your current operations, our team has the expertise and knowledge to make your goals a reality.

Our Approach to International Tax

Our approach and partnership with the CPA is a long-term partnership. We work to not only understand your clients’ global business goals but also to identify each facet of their business. Through our experience, the only way to provide outstanding service is to possess an operational and functional understanding of your business.

Our team assists clients with global commercial transactions and ensures you make a good deal. International business is fraught with opportunity but not without risk of the unknown. Operating and doing business overseas prompts new geography, culture, laws, regulations, and tax regimes. All of these are familiar to our team. Our role is to navigate through the risk of unfamiliarity while providing a successful start in your new markets.


Global Expansion

More than ever, businesses are expanding into global markets. Global opportunities create a number of challenges both in the new market and in the United States. Our experts provide guidance to those who are looking to overcome these challenges and reap the benefits of global expansion.

Turn-Key Plan: Whether you know the jurisdictions into which you want to expand or still need guidance, our team can provide you with a turn-key plan that identifies the most viable jurisdictions and related considerations. This will allow you and your team to fully evaluate:

  • Benefits and risks of expansion on a variety of levels
    -Locations (country, state, province and metropolitan area), Labor and Employment, Tax, Intellectual Property and Information Technology
