International Tax

Compliance is only one element of an optimal tax strategy. We balance our clients’ U.S. tax considerations with their worldwide tax optimization strategies.

International Tax

AAFCPAs performs thorough and thoughtful reviews of our clients’ potential tax exposures arising from cross-border transactions.

US companies that venture into international markets may encounter a number of tax issues that could result in significant unanticipated tax liabilities. Overseas companies entering the US market will have similar tax issues. In addition, these inbound companies have accounting needs similar to US start-up organizations, including: choice of accounting systems, general ledger assistance, and compliance with federal and state payroll reporting. AAFCPAs’ experience working with the entrepreneurial community is equally applicable to overseas companies expanding into the US.

AAFCPAs has over four decades of comprehensive tax expertise. Our disciplined approach to tax planning allows us to customize our advice to your business and financial goals. We focus on preserving cash and maximizing shareholder value.

Considerations that could have a major impact on your international tax burden include:

  • Corporate income tax, and planning opportunities related to the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (H.R. 1)
  • Transfer pricing / customs valuation
  • Goods and services tax
  • Value added tax
  • Choice of entity (subsidiary or branch)
  • Withholding tax on dividends, interest and other payments
  • Interest, royalties and management service agreements
  • Foreign bank account reporting (FBAR)
  • Repatriation of profits to parent company
  • Employee relocation and expatriate taxation
  • Social Security and employee benefits
  • Treaty considerations

By working with our overseas affiliates and our internationally-based clients’ local advisors, we balance our clients’ U.S. tax considerations with their worldwide tax optimization strategies.
