Kamini D. Patel, CPA

Kamini Patel, CPA - Delaware Accountant

DIRECTOR/CHAIR – Corporate Services


Meet Kamini
Thinker | Responsive | Global | Traditionalist

We know she would never boast, but we hear that Kamini’s commendations for response time are part
of her claim to fame among our clients. We really like that about her too.

And whether she’s designing a payroll system for an international corporate services client or educating
someone on the nuance of financial management as an investment holding company, she’s quickly building
a bridge between her holding company work and the tax strategy. That’s because she’s been doing that for
25 years, looking at the relationship between financial decisions and tax strategy and getting our clients
quick answers.

Yet, there’s so much more in her portfolio of experience. Securely and thoroughly defining the nexus of
each client’s situation is at the heart of her strategic advice to clients; Kamini has become increasingly
involved with financial matters for our complex international clients’ operating entities in Delaware.
Providing insight, direction and high-value guidance to our global corporate services clients, Kamini is
a member of the firm’s Foreign Entity Section.

Perspectives from Kamini

“Making the connections for global entities and their Delaware office means looking at everything on
the business’s agenda, from preparing for Board meetings to creating tax strategies and efficient payroll

“I like to build the bridge between my holding company work and tax strategy. Without this, a client may
miss an opportunity for growth and expansion, and that simply can’t happen.”

    • Death, Taxes and Plan Errors

      In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes, and retirement plan operational errors. Two decades of plan audits have shown time and time again that even the most accurate plan sponsor is not immune from making one of the common errors.


    • Top Hat Plans Viewed Through the Looking Glass

      At one point the top hat was commonly found throughout American history and pop culture. During the 19th century, it served as a symbol of freedom sitting atop President Abraham Lincoln’s head as he navigated the country through the Civil War.


    • Due June 30 – Investing Abroad Requires Even More Reporting – Form BE-10
