Biography

Questions relating taxation with respect to business planning (and personal estate planning) are particularly complex when more than one country is involved. Simple contexts in which such questions arise are when: (1) a citizen or resident of country A owns assets in country B; (2) a citizen of country A works (and lives) in country B; (3) a citizen of country A is married to a citizen of B; (4) citizen of country A lives in country B, owns assets in country C, dies while in country D, and so forth. The U.S. has a broad jurisdictional base for business and estate and gift taxation, taxing citizens regardless of their domicile or the location of their assets. Incidents of double (and triple) taxation are increasingly common (without proper planning). This is why it is critically important to consult with a qualified local legal professional to resolve the many complex issues in this area if you are considering expanding your business (and it's personnel) beyond the borders of the US, or are interested in establishing a foreign branch, subsidiary, or permanent establishment within the borders of the US from abroad. If you and your business are considering such an expansion, let me assist you so that we can discuss what inernational business and tax planning options are available given your specific plans and the target national markets that you wish to enter.
