Accounting Firm for Ex-Pat Tax Services

We would like to welcome EFPR Group as a Silver Sponsor of The Australian Community.

Whether you are the CEO of an Australian corporation opening operations in the United States or working in America on a non-immigrant visa, choosing an accounting firm for IRS filings or another ex-pat tax service is one of your most important decisions.

In addition to the IRS requiring a USA tax return, the IRS requires certain US information filings such as FBAR, which may include Superannuation and other financial accounts held in Australia. Having an Accountant who understands these and broader tax issues such as double taxation and dual citizenship, is essential for Australian ex-pats living in the USA to correctly complete their annual IRS tax return.

You could also be searching for an accounting firm offering business consulting, tax consulting, consulting services, business advisory, or business consulting services.

We took time to record an interview with members of EFPR’s International Tax Group to speak to some of the ex-pat tax services they provide. If you are looking for a new firm to handle your US tax filing and reporting requirements for the IRS, this video may assist with your due diligence process.

We spoke with Kevin Hill, Richele Sharn, and Scott Buckley of EFPR’s International Tax Group.  EFPR Group is an Accounting firm of CPAs ex-pat tax services across the United States, and Internationally.
