The US remains a significant market for domestic and international investors. Investment Funds with US investors and/or US investments have complicated reporting requirements. Without planning or regulatory compliance, investment returns can be significantly impacted and/or penalties incurred.


Both domestic and foreign investors continue to select the US as an investment location using many different types of structures. With its extremely complex tax system, returns from US investments can be negatively impacted by poor planning, choosing the wrong structure or a lack of understanding of the “ins and outs” of the unwieldy US Internal Revenue Code. For US investors who wish to venture into international markets, the US tax system is intricate and complicated, and can often be a minefield for those who are not well versed in its compliance reporting requirements.

With the continuing statutory and regulatory changes, the rising cost of compliance is an increasingly important consideration for fund administration. We offer clients a fee-sensitive US tax compliance solution while ensuring they meet fund and investor US tax reporting requirements.

Whether you are looking to establish a new fund, raise new capital, satisfy compliance reporting requirements, or plan an exit, we provide a customized service at every stage of a fund’s lifecycle. (Note: we do not provide legal services in setting up funds.)
