Leaving the USA to Move Abroad

 
 

As a US citizen, moving abroad is not the end of your US taxation filing requirements. If you ignore, or are unaware of your obligations you can face significant penalties for non-compliance.

Since the introduction of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), some foreign jurisdictions will automatically report your overseas bank account information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This means the IRS may be aware of financial information that is omitted from your tax filing information.

Our team provide comprehensive advice regarding the tax implications of moving overseas, changing tax residency and any foreign companies or trusts you may have.

Our goal is to ensure you are aware of the potential tax consequences of your options, so that you can obtain the optimal income tax position for your personal goals and circumstances.
