Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is the benefit of outsourced international tax and accounting services?

Staying compliant is a task that countless businesses, small and large, get help with from professional tax and accounting firms like BoardRoom. On an international playing field, both the complexity and importance of compliance are only multiplied.

Our global accounting and tax services can help you gain a better understanding of your company’s finances, navigate tricky tax matters, and identify areas for further growth and cost-saving. All of this is done while freeing up time for your own internal team to focus on growth directly.

2. Why is it important to maintain compliance?

Businesses, especially those operating on an international level, run the risk of unintentionally filing tax or accounting reports incorrectly. To stay compliant is of utmost importance if you want to avoid hefty fines or worse for your business – potentially across several different jurisdictions.

3. What compliance challenges do international businesses face?

When expanding your business globally, there’s a long list of hurdles you will have to jump over to maintain compliance. Businesses operating with or without a representative office will have varying tax obligations, while some countries utilise a value-added tax (VAT) system that will need to be navigated as well. Beyond this, managing a global team when it comes to matters like payroll can become troublesome without the proper infrastructure.

International accounting and tax services can help with all of this. Please contact us for more information.

Transfer pricing services are an integral part of our global tax services offer. These services are designed to help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing rules and regulations associated with cross-border transactions between related parties.

Transfer pricing refers to the process of determining the fair market value of goods and services that are traded between related parties, such as subsidiaries or affiliates of a multinational corporation. This is important because the prices that are charged for these transactions can have a significant impact on a company’s financial performance and tax liability.

Our transfer pricing professionals have a deep understanding of transfer pricing rules and regulations and can provide the following services:

  4. Transfer pricing dispute resolution: This service involves representing a company in transfer pricing disputes with tax authorities.

Global mobility services are a critical component of international business operations. Our global mobility services are there to help companies manoeuvre the complicated rules and regulations associated with the movement of employees across borders.

International assignments can be complex and involve a range of legal, financial, and administrative considerations. Our global mobility professionals can help you navigate these complexities and ensure compliance with relevant laws.

Some of the key services we offer include:

7. What are financial reporting services?

Financial reporting refers to the process of presenting financial information in a clear and transparent manner, so that stakeholders can understand a company’s financial performance and position. This is important because the financial reports that a company produces can have a significant impact on its reputation, credibility, and overall financial performance.

To ensure compliance with local and international financial reporting legislation, companies may seek the services of a financial reporting professional like us.
