US Tax Services for Individuals
The US is the only developed country in the world that taxes its citizens and residents on worldwide income and gains, no matter where they live. US expats and US persons with investments or financial accounts outside the US are also exposed to additional US tax compliance obligations and planning issues.
Annual Tax Return preparation – filing US taxes from the UK
Under the US tax system, US persons are required to file annual US income tax returns and various additional informational reports. Non-US persons must also comply with the US tax rules if they have investments in the United States, income or gains from the US, or own US entities through a non-US structure.
Failure to file the returns and reports in a timely manner, or incorrectly, can result in substantial penalties.
