US Inbound Tax Services

​Effectively integrating a US investment into your global portfolio has its share of challenges and opportunities, whether you are establishing a footprint in the US for the first time or have had a US presence for many years. Non-US-headquartered companies that invest in the US face a complicated, high-cost tax system, including a wide array of federal, state, and local taxing jurisdictions.


The resulting tax complexity may put your company at risk for noncompliance, or result in surprises in your total tax liability. A few prominent areas of risk include withholding obligations on cross-border payments, tax information reporting requirements, transfer pricing, and nexus issues in various states.
