In today’s global marketplace, many of our clients conduct business across geographic and cultural boundaries. There are many accounting questions that occur when involved with a foreign entity. Our staff pays careful attention to each situation and provides expert assistance to US citizens working abroad or investing in foreign entities. Just being located in Delaware gives our firm a unique advantage – The Delaware Advantage – to specialize in consulting foreign companies using Delaware as a gateway into the US market (foreign direct investment). As countries enact cooperative programs to shift toward global tax transparency, we keep our clients ahead of the evolving reporting requirements.

To better serve our clients, BLS is an independent member firm of PrimeGlobal. PrimeGlobal is the third largest association of independent accounting firms in the world, comprised of over 350 highly successful independent accounting firms in 90 countries. Formed from a merger in 2011, PrimeGlobal provides its independent member firms with tools and resources to help them furnish superior accounting, auditing, tax and management services to clients around the globe. Through PrimeGlobal, independent member firms offer the strength and capabilities of a large, worldwide organization with technical depth and geographic reach impossible for a local firm alone.
