International Accounting Experts
We know what to do because we do it ourselves.
While expanding your business by seeing opportunities overseas can be a very smart move, an efficient tax structure is one of the keys to international success. It is also vital to have a team that understands exactly what you will be exposed to and exactly how to avoid becoming entangled in the complex web of international taxes and pitfalls.

“Expatriate tax” (or personal international tax) covers tax issues that happen when individuals people move around the world. Of course, this applies to individuals living and working in Australia but also having interests elsewhere in the world (think rental property or investments in their home country), or Australian residents taking a working holiday or being seconded to work outside Australia. This is when issues with residency and double taxation can come into play.
