Greenback Expat Tax Services is an expat-owned and -operated company. Greenback doesn’t just specialize in expat taxes, it’s the only kind of taxes we prepare! Expat advocacy is at the forefront of everything we do. And not only are we founded by expats and serve expats exclusively, but many employees on our team are also expats. Greenback is able to hire some of the most capable accountants in the world because we operate on a fully remote basis. That means there is no Greenback headquarters or office to clock into, and that our accountants can live anywhere in the world, just like you. Find out how Greenback has found success as a 100% remote operation, below.
Let’s Start at the Very Beginning
Greenback co-founders Carrie and David McKeegan first had the spark of an idea for starting an expat tax company while living in the UK. Finding competent, trustworthy expat tax providers was frustrating and they realized other expats had the same unsatisfying experience. So, they created a tax preparation company with the goals of hiring accountants that maintained the most current expat tax information, creating a system that was simple and easy to work with, and treating customers fairly and respectfully. In 2009, Greenback Expat Tax Services was born.
The Greenback Expat Tax Services Team
Like we mentioned above, our clients live around the world, and so do we. Our operations are 100% virtual. Since we have no office, we have no office hours, which is helpful when you’re interacting with clients who could live in any time zone! And it means that we can sift through highly trained accountants across the globe, and hand-select the best in the West (and North, and South, and East).
Operating remotely means our company attracts flexible, hard-working, innovative employees. Take a look at the bios from the accountants or management staff that comprise our team! Jetsetters, explorers, and adventurers abound. And so many of them understand firsthand the stress that can accompany tax season for expats.
Greenback’s growth has meant an exciting journey for our team. Due to our remote operation, our growth has not been hampered by brick and mortar limitations or expense considerations. Since Greenback’s inception, we have:
- Grown our team of accountants and management
- Prepared more than 28,000 expat tax returns
- Provided expert tax services to over 9,300 US expats
- Prepared expat tax returns for customers in more than 214 countries and territories
- Launched a streamlined, painless tax prep platform with our Greenback Tax Companion – built entirely from expat feedback!
On top of that, Greenback is dedicated to continual expat education and routinely provides free resources in the form of blog posts, free how-to guides, webinars, and more. We show this level of commitment because a large part of our team has been in your shoes before.
