As regulation across the funds industry increases in complexity and tax laws evolve, it is important to get your tax filings right. The IRS requires all LLCs and Partnerships filing a Partnership return in the US, including offshore partnership entities, to appoint a Partnership Representative. If you do not appoint your own representative the IRS will appoint one for you and it must be a person with a substantial presence in the US. The representative must have a US taxpayer ID number, a US telephone number, an address and be able to meet in person with the IRS at a reasonable time and place.

We can take this burden away from you. With presence in major financial centres and cities across the US, we can offer local expertise complemented by the pricing power and economies of scale of a global business.

  • Preparation of year-end tax estimates and schedules
  • Identification and recording of tax adjustments, including awash sales, straddles and constructive sales
