VSH CPA serves hundreds of international clients and has the depth of experience to help you break through borders and maximize market potential.

 

For Businesses:

We are dedicated to helping your business thrive and expand. Roughly ⅓ of our practice, with 15 employees, is dedicated to specialization in the expansion of businesses and integration of cross-border assets. We assist businesses with strategies, compliance and coaching to help optimize opportunities for market expansion.

We can guide you through the complexities of international tax law including:

  • Establishing New Operations or Joint Ventures
  • Tax Compliance and Efficiency
  • Go to Market and Expansion Strategy
  • Corporate Structure and Organizational Design
  • Transfer Pricing
  • Financing Requirements
  • Estate Planning
  • Multinational Holdings
  • Worldwide Network and Relationships
  • Reducing tax liabilities and avoiding double taxation
  • And much more….

 

For Individuals:

We also serve many individuals and families who have a cross-border element to personal holdings. If you are non-U.S. Citizen with U.S. holdings (e.g. business assets or property) and have income from these investments you may have outstanding tax liabilities that we can help with.  If you are a U.S. citizen living abroad we can help you comply with U.S. tax laws and plan your personal/business structure to optimize the best tax strategy for both sides of the border.

Tax exposure can be significant for estates – both U.S. estates and non-U.S. estates that may be exposed to U.S. tax due to U.S. holdings. We’re here to help you plan for the best asset retention plans.

We can advise you on how to optimize and retain personal wealth in a complicated cross-border environment. We seek to help guide and streamline your filings and strategy to minimize tax exposure. With recent tax reform, the need for planning is ever-more pressing.
