Holding Company Services

We launched our Corporate Services division over three decades ago and now, since acquiring Delaware Holding Company Services, Inc., we have an entire division of professionals to assist domestic companies and foreign owned U.S. entities in creating Delaware Investment Holding Companies (Special Purpose Entities). We think it is fair to say that we are the “go to” CPAs and financial gurus for holding companies.

And, we believe that we’ve earned our merit award from the volume of referrals we’ve received from esteemed bankers, accountants, and attorneys. The longevity of our relationships is the trust and competence that speaks to the value we provide to our clients.

Thinking of creating a special purpose entity as a vehicle for managing your state and local tax liabilities? If you are going to do it in Delaware, do it here because, as they say, we’ve “been there, done that.”
