Foreign Investments and Foreign Ownership
Miami is one of the most international cities in the United States. Many South Florida CPA firms fail to understand the needs of our wealthy immigrant communities that have investments in their home countries or elsewhere in the world. The modern world of global capital in the 21st Century makes the ability to raise money from foreign investors critical, but not all CPAs know the rules and regulations governing foreign ownership. We handle clients with investments in South America, the Caribbean, United Kingdom, European Union, Asia, and the Middle East. Where ever you deploy your capital in the world, or from whomever you raise your capital, Bette will make sure you comply with the relevant United States and State filings.
Law Firms and Attorneys
Small law firms with 1-4 partners have unique needs stemming from the various structures of their firms. Some firms operate as a traditional businesses, others are partnerships of individual companies, and others have blended structures. These unique offerings, combined with a mixture of self-employed owners and employees, often require sensitivity to these companies’ unique challenges. Our South Florida CPA firm is ready to help your law firm excel financially.
Web3: Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, NFTs, and DAOs
Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, and NFTs have been some of the hottest financial instruments in recent years. The underlying blockchain technology has also enabled new business concepts like DAOs. As a technology-oriented firm that participates in the Miami Tech scene, we work with various cryptocurrency entrepreneurs and Bitcoin investors on their compliance and business needs.
