International Trade

Conducting business on an international scale requires an understanding of tariffs, treaties, contract regulations, transportation and logistics. Each component impacts taxes, filing requirements and ultimately bottom-profits. A knowledgeable and resourceful expert by your side can help your company go far.

Our professionals have experience handling the challenges of multi-state and global operations. They know the questions to ask, the advice to provide and the traps to watch for in tailoring multi-state plans. Their guidance is especially helpful for companies in pre-expansion phases. A thoughtful conversation before expansion can help ensure that the eventual tax burden does not outweigh the opportunity.
