"With the access to accounting and law firms around the world that TIAG adds, Berdon’s new service line will reach property owners from over 90 countries."
St. Petersburg, Florida and New York (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
With a growing number of non-resident owners of U.S. real estate, Top 35 accounting and advisory firm Berdon LLP has launched a new service, Business Management for Offshore Owners of U.S. Real Estate, to fulfill their accounting, tax, and administrative needs.
“New York remains one of the strongest markets in the country for real estate investment by offshore owners,” noted Maury Golbert, CPA, J.D., LL.M., chair of Berdon’s Real Estate Services Group. “Given Berdon’s substantial real estate practice, the Firm’s extensive international, state and local tax expertise, and our business management experience, we are well equipped to guide offshore owners of U.S. real estate both before and after the purchase.”
Berdon, a member of The International Accounting Group® (TIAG®) is also well positioned to service the more than 115 independent accounting firms within TIAG and its sister alliance of more than 150 independent law firms, TAGLaw®.
"Berdon's reputation as one of the largest and finest firms in the United States is led by their unparalleled expertise in real estate matters,” said Robert Sattin, President of TIAG and TAGLaw. “With the access to accounting and law firms around the world that TIAG adds, Berdon’s new service line will reach property owners from over 90 countries. I know our members and their clients will benefit greatly from this new and timely service offering."
Prior to acquiring a U.S. residence, Berdon advises offshore individuals on the following:
- Should the real estate be owned by an individual, trust, corporation, or LLC?
- How can tax obligations be minimized—now and when faced with estate taxes?
- What is the most efficient way to finance the acquisition?
- How can the offshore owner be assured that all local, state, and federal obligations are being met?
Following the purchase, Berdon supplies offshore owners with accurate, reliable assistance with tax filings, bill paying, bookkeeping, budgeting, and record keeping services.
“These residences may be purchased as an investment, as a home for the owner’s children, as a New York pied-a-terre,” Golbert said. “But whatever the use, there are issues that come with ownership and bills that must be paid. That’s what we do for these owners.”
