There’s a lot to consider when organizing an international move. (We’ve done it a few times, too!) With so many things to set up before and after the move, tax compliance may not make your list of highest priorities – but it should.
Splitting income and expenses between countries, ensuring foreign assets and income are properly reported, avoiding penalties and fines, maximizing foreign tax credits to offset US tax calculations… even determining which country’s tax return should be filed first; there’s a lot to consider. We can help you navigate the US tax side of this equation and help set you up for success and smooth the transition between countries.
We offer a variety of services for clients moving internationally, including:
- Pre- or post- move consultation to get you up to speed with filing requirements and tax considerations
- Reporting German and other international income and assets
- Coordinating with your German tax advisor to determine the best timeline or strategy for filing each of the returns
- Maximizing foreign tax credits and applying tax treaties to minimize double tax between Germany and the US
