Worldwide view of tax planning
Companies operating in a multi-national environment face a plethora of tax challenges. Rather than face these burdens alone, Meaden & Moore’s international tax team can help. We have extensive experience handling day-to-day international tax issues, as well as designing and executing safe and effective strategies for worldwide tax minimization. Our relationship with AGN International enables us to provide our clients with real time, on-the-ground representation from licensed tax and accounting professionals in more than 80 countries worldwide.
When it comes to proactive tax planning, every company doing business internationally must consider both U.S. and non-U.S. tax regulations. You must know how your business is impacted by numerous countries' tax laws, including the often overlooked "sub-national" taxes.
Customs duties, sales taxes, excise taxes, social taxes, and value-added taxes can result in significant costs of doing business—and these costs vary greatly from one country to the next.
To help you sort through the maze of national tax laws and international tax treaties, the Meaden & Moore International Tax Services Group offers a comprehensive range of international tax services.
