Staying up to date and compliant with the US tax code can be hard work. When you factor in international tax laws and accounting standards related to global operations, many businesses just don’t have the time or personnel to handle the challenge.
To keep our clients well informed about laws and regulations relevant to their current global operations or potential moves into new international markets, we monitor laws, regulations, and accounting standards for them around the world.
A large regional firm, our clients represent many businesses, among them energy companies, real estate firms, private equity groups, broker/dealers, and others. LaPorte’s International Services Group includes certified public accountants, an AICPA International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)-certified professional, a certified specialist in estate planning, and a master of laws in taxation. Their experience extends across US GAAP to IFRS conversions, addressing the complex tax issues (including foreign earned income exclusion and foreign tax credits) of US citizens working overseas, and inbound and outbound investment assistance, among others.
Our International Services Group also emphasize staff education that focuses on international tax laws and accounting standards. Importantly, through our membership in nationally recognized RSM US Alliance, a premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms, we also have access to RSM International, a global network of 38,000 audit, tax, and advisory professionals.
