Tax Planning & Preparation

Our in-house tax team brings extensive industry experience, relying on a thorough and pragmatic approach to solving our clients’ most complex tax issues.

Our tax capabilities are broad, and we serve individual and corporate clients globally.

Our team of experienced tax advisors is adept at handling all aspects of U.S. taxes for expats in Hong Kong—whether you’ve just moved, have been living there for years, or are on a short-term assignment. We provide comprehensive guidance on how your Hong Kong financial accounts affect your U.S. tax filing and help you identify potential tax benefits.

Our tax team has extensive experience in:
  • U.S. tax preparation
  • Gifts, estate and tax planning
  • Delinquent tax returns under the Streamline Program
  • Foreign financial account reporting/Form 5471
  • Other complex U.S. tax compliance matters
Our team facilitates in-depth conversations and provides clear, understandable advice. That means you can feel confident about your U.S. tax obligations, no matter how deep your financial roots grow in Hong Kong. We hope you’ll reach out to us for a conversation and further support for your U.S. and cross-border tax planning and tax compliance needs. Are you an expat living in Tokyo or Singapore? We represent clients all throughout Asia.
