Services for Funds & Partnerships
The United States remains a favorite location for international investors. With its extremely complex tax system, US investment returns can be seriously reduced with poor tax planning or a lack of understanding of the “ins and outs” of the unwieldy US Internal Revenue Code. For the US investors who wish to venture into international markets, the US tax system has hidden obstacles around every corner that can catch the uninitiated unaware and often at a great cost.
