International Services

In today’s global marketplace, many of our clients conduct business across geographic and cultural boundaries. There are many tax and accounting questions that occur when involved with a foreign entity. Our International Services Team pays careful attention to each situation and provides expert assistance to foreign businesses branching into the U.S. market, as well as to U.S. citizens working or investing abroad. Just being located in Delaware gives our firm a unique advantage to specialize in consulting foreign companies using Delaware as a gateway into the U.S. 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 fifth largest association of independent accounting firms in the world, comprised of approximately 300 highly successful independent public accounting firms in over 100 countries. 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.
