A Shropshire accountancy firm is heading stateside in a bid to attract new business overseas.
Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants, in Old Potts Way, Shrewsbury, has launched a new office in Cleveland, Ohio, and Rob Whittall – one of the Company’s Directors – will split his time between the UK and the USA.
The official launch has been announced after 5 years of research and business networking, during which Rob has developed a portfolio of corporate and individual clients who need both UK and/or USA tax or accounting advice.
“Many of the corporate clients are UK companies who are looking to expand into the US, and during my time here I work with their team to help translate the way the US tax and accountancy systems are run.
“This means companies don’t have to give up their existing accountancy support here at home, as I can work with their representatives and help them manage the transition as they take their first steps overseas.”
Rob also works with US residents who live here in the UK as they are always required to file a US tax return, no matter where they are living in the world.
“As the UK and US have different tax year ends, we have to work with both systems to try to minimise the amount of tax people have to pay and maximise their ability to use foreign tax credits.”
Dyke Yaxley Managing Director, Helen Thomas, said: We’re delighted the new office is now officially established, and we’re very grateful for Rob’s commitment and hard work in developing a firm footing for this new service.
“It’s a new business area for us, and we’re looking forward to building even stronger links with businesses both here in the UK and in the USA who want effective and professional advice that will make all the difference.”
