Your challenge

Optimizing your U.S. taxes becomes more important as tax laws continually change. Critical to this process is the smooth integration of foreign tax considerations with your U.S. tax planning. Yet, this can be challenging for several reasons:

  • You may have experienced U.S. tax specialists on staff, but few companies can afford to have specialists in all of the major foreign tax jurisdictions.
  • You might rely on tax advisors for help in foreign jurisdictions, but do you have access to them when you need them? Is it financially feasible to have them travel to your U.S. offices for an in-person consultation?
  • While specialists in foreign jurisdictions may have great local knowledge, they may not have a firm grasp on how those local issues mesh with your most important U.S. tax issues.
  • Specialists in foreign jurisdictions rarely understand the overarching issues of a U.S. multinational parent organization, including constraints on its U.S. operations, Treasury and U.S. and global tax objectives.

To overcome these issues, wouldn't it be helpful and more convenient to have senior tax specialists from key foreign jurisdictions available here in the U.S. to participate in your tax discussions and decision processes? Someone who understands the overall tax context of your company, along with the tax technical issues specific to the foreign country? Tax specialists who work with you — professionals who can authoritatively answer many international tax questions, with an approach and understanding of U.S. business needs?
