- In-depth understanding of expat tax requirements, credits, and planning
- Up-to-date knowledge of the latest tax code changes

Will my accountant be friendly and responsive to my questions?
In addition to tax expertise, your accountant will be friendly, helpful, and answer all of your questions promptly.
