International Accounting is not just a concept. It's a specialization.
You may already know about foreign tax credits – credits that help you avoid being taxed in the U.S. on income that you’ve already paid taxes for in another country. But many other unique challenges face foreign companies who wish to do business in the U.S. Some may need guidance to set up and maintain the proper business structure, or to remain in compliance with the myriad of state, local, and federal filing requirements throughout the year. Others may need pricing guidance for sales and services in the U.S.
If your cross-border company is public or has plans to go public, your accounting standards should be compliant with international accounting standards, formerly the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The new standards are called the International Financial Reporting Standards, or IFRS, and are set forth by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), based in the United Kingdom.
Multinational firms based in the U.S. could face significant changes soon, as the Obama administration proposes changes that could generate over $200 billion in tax revenue over 10 years, in large part from multinational corporations. Companies doing cross-border business should take the time to understand how the proposed changes might affect them, and plan ahead to minimize tax liability. Hodgson CPA can help.
International accounting is not just a concept. It’s a specialization. Your accounting standards and practices should not only hold up to an audit, they should also help maximize the profits of your business all year round.
Working with an experienced CPA firm is not a luxury, it’s good business.
