During a recent chat with Eric Majchrzak, Director of Marketing of BeachFleischman, we got to talking about how even small firms need international tax proficiency these days. Sitting there in Tucson, Arizona, you can naturally imagine their business clients requiring cross-border experience and expertise when it comes to tax work, regulations knowledge and more. This forward-thinking $16 million firm is representative of what we’ve heard in conversations with public accounting firms–and on the accounting conference trail–this year. Whether or not your small accounting firm has this depth of ability or not, a decision had to have been made (or will be made) along the lines of either having international skill and ability or not. There’s no right or wrong answer. Many firms are doing it, acquiring it or developing it; other firms simply want to outsource international needs. In the words of the Rush song Freewill … “if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
The bigger question, though…is your firm savvy and moving toward the future?
