‘USA Tax Compliance and Advisory Services’ for local residents.

Crowe Horwath Jamaica strengthens its tax service offerings by announcing a new professional services solution: ‘USA Tax Compliance and Advisory Services’ for local residents.
For the 2017 tax year, Crowe Horwath Jamaica can assist United States connected persons with their U.S. tax filings and related matters while they are in Jamaica.
If you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident alien of the U.S. (“Greencard Holder”), the rules for filing income, estate, and gift tax returns are generally the same no matter where you are living. Your worldwide income is subject to U.S. income tax reporting even if you are tax resident in Jamaica.
According to Dawkins Brown, Managing Partner of Crowe Horwath Jamaica, “Many U.S. citizens and Greencard Holders are not aware of their continuing obligations for U.S. regarding tax filings and other tax compliance reporting when living outside of the U.S.” Examples:
  • U.S. citizens or Greencard Holders are subject to U.S. tax on their worldwide income irrespective of where the earnings are obtained or the currency in which they are paid;
  • Jamaica tax residents who are not U.S. citizens or Greencard holders that travel to the U.S. on business may have a U.S. federal and possibly state tax filing obligation; 
  • You may have U.S. tax filing obligations even if you are not earning any income but previously filed a joint return with a spouse.
Jim Dawson, International Tax Partner at Crowe Horwath LLP, commented “Today’s global tax environment looks different with global tax disrupters such as Brexit, FATCA, FBAR, the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) monitoring, and pending tax reform in the United States. These disrupters can affect both individuals and companies, from their operations and structures to reporting of transactions. The cost of non-compliance can be very expensive.”
The collaboration of the U.S. tax professionals of Crowe Horwath LLP and Crowe Horwath Jamaica will provide Jamaica residents with effective cross border tax services utilising Crowe’s “Global 360” approach to provide appropriate tax solutions.
Gary Johnson who serves as National Managing Director for Crowe Horwath’s Global Mobility Services group commented “Our objective is to assist our clients with effective and efficient tax support across the globe. The U.S. Tax Compliance and Advisory Services that Crowe Horwath Jamaica is now offering will allow Jamaica based individuals and entities to fulfil their U.S. tax compliance obligations by bringing access to these services in Jamaica.”

advisory overview | Are you making the best decision for your company’s future?

Many acquisitions fail to live up to expectations. The reasons range from poor deal structure, poor strategic fit, failure to identify problems with the quality of earnings, overly optimistic estimates of synergies, to lack of an integration plan.

Evaluating a company in another country compounds these risks. You are dealing with a different language and cultural barriers; different business ethics, legal systems, filing regulations, and accounting principles; transfer pricing that affects taxation – and often government involvement.
But international deals often provide the best growth opportunities. They can offer improved returns from economies of scale, new target markets for existing products/services, access to commodity materials, and a hedge against seasonality.
Even savvy managements and private equity investors cannot know everything they should to make a deal successful, so they need an experienced international advisor.
Please feel free to contact our office at 1876-9083124  with any questions regarding advisory services. more

Is your business truly tax efficient?

Every day – somewhere in the world – tax regulations, rules, and treaties change. Strategies that reduced taxes yesterday may not work today. New opportunities to save money could be missed – especially as you enter new markets. The talented tax staff in your organization might not have time to keep up with each nuance. Your current tax advisor may think your company is too small for personal attention – or your advisor may be too small to serve you.
Successful companies consider tax implications before they make business decisions, so they do not pay more than their legal obligation. This makes international tax compliance, consulting, and structuring a crucial element in your global strategy.
