The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act – FATCA explained

What our Clients Say

Kiwis with US-sourced income and Yankees resident or working in New Zealand have a lot in common:  dual taxation.  The two countries’ taxation systems are quite dissimilar and that which is taxable in one jurisdiction may or not be in the other – to say nothing of foreign bank reporting requirements.  Anyone who has faced these issues knows that working with and through them successfully is not for the faint-hearted.  Happily, this is the space in which NZ-US Tax Specialists thrives.  Their personal service is unmatched in my New Zealand experience, and their knowledge, far-sightedness, and thoroughly professional approach to clients’ needs give me cause to recommend them unreservedly.
